This very funny fractured fairy tale with delicious illustrations by the legendary Helen Oxenbury, will appeal to any young child who just loves knocking things down!   This big bad pig is a can-do kind of fellow and the wolves so post-modern in their choice of house building materials, that an unusual solution to the mayhem has to be found.

You are brought along on every Christmas joy--along with some of the anxiety, anticipation, and excitement--with this seemingly simple repetition. Each page appears to stand on its own, but look closely and you'll be able  to discern backstory and visual narrative from the fuzzy, soft, expressive illustrations that accompany. My new Christmas favorite.

This board book version of the 2 year- old Old Bear and His Cub showcases Dunrea’s art even better than the original. Somehow the mooth surfaces make it crisper  and cleaner. This is a lovely book about the relationship between two caring creatures.

You will first be captivated by this book’s drawings, but it is the story that proves most charming.  Born to the same litter, Boot and Shoe do everything together. Well, almost everything. Boot spends his day on the back porch, “because he’s a back porch kind of dog”, and Shoe spends his day on the front porch, “because he’s a front porch kind of dog”. Then a pesky neighbor squirrel stirs things up, they both give chase, and things change. This fun and touching tale of friendship will prove to be a favorite. One that will be read, and read, and read….
