In this lovely picture book, Albert just wants a peaceful place to read. Albert's neighborhood friends have other ideas. Is it possible to have solitude with people? Featuring the same neighborhood children as Colette's Lost Pet, Arsenault's picture book series is a sweet successor of Sendak's Nutshell Library gang, and a welcome addition to picture book shelves.

Rabbit is searching for Lettuce, but finds some weird story-portals along the way in this rainbow-colored gem. Dog Man readers are going to devour this! If I brought this book into my after-school comics class there'd be an epic battle over who got to read it first!

A strange, funny, and surprisingly touching novel about a family of Floridian taxidermists whose sense of duty and expression of love cuts them open as their knives do the skins of the animals they mount. I couldn’t put it down (and I have a phobia of taxidermy).
