Aaron Becker, A Stone for Sascha

This year's summer vacation will be very different for a young girl and her family without Sascha, the beloved family dog, along for the ride.

Matt Forrest Esenwine, Deborah Bruss, & Holly Thompson

Written in a masterfully-executed rhyme, the book presents a cavalcade of lesser-known dinos and pairs their odd characteristics with little tasks that are hilariously impossible because of those features. "Don't ask Deinocheirus to set the forks and spoons," because his hands were enormous, "Therizinosaurus cannot blow up balloons," because he had very long claws. In the end they find the one thing everyone can help do is to blow out the candles on the cake...but will it create yet another mess?
