Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes

An intrepid youngster yearns for the moon, which looks like a “little bowl of milk, just waiting.” When her numerous attempts to reach it prove untenable, she returns home, tired and hungry, where there is a “great big bowl of milk on the porch, just waiting for her.” In bold black-and-white ink and charcoal (with a gold Caldecott sticker) reminiscent of Japanese woodblock art, this is a purrfect board book.  —GA

Dory and the Real True Friend by Abby Hanlon

“In a sequel every bit as delightful as its predecessor, Hanlon follows the wildly imaginative star of Dory Fantasmagory to school, where Dory attempts to make a ‘real’ friend (as opposed to the monsters she plays with at home). She is immediately drawn to a princess-loving girl named Rosabelle, but Dory’s overtures of friendship don’t initially hit their mark…. Once again, Hanlon’s hilarious narration and cartooning reveal an uncanny talent for getting into the mile-a-minute mind of a one-of-a-kind girl.” —Publishers Weekly. Grades 1–3.
