This modern story of a little girl making a dandelion her beloved best friend will have most people cheering on her imagination. Santo’s illustrations are hilarious. You feel the glares of the other dads as they inform the daddy in question that dandelions are unacceptable on lawns. You hear the frustration when every time the dad tries to get rid of Charlotte and his daughter foils him. And you feel the pain of this daughter when trouble finds Charlotte. Perfect for father’s day or any day! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette


The Chinese Emperor's New Clothes by Ying Chang Compestine - Book Review

The Chinese Emperor's New Clothes Cover Image
$17.99
ISBN: 9781419725425
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Abrams Books for Young Readers - December 26th, 2017

Compestine’s story differs from the Western classic where the tailors trick a vain Emperor, this time the tailors are the heroes of the story, along with a young Emperor who knows his advisors are lying, cheating and stealing from him. This retelling is a pleasant change to what we are used to, and the rich, bold illustrations are fabulous with how they capture the time and place. Historical and biographical information about the author also included. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette


Look Up with Me: Neil deGrasse Tyson: A Life Among the Stars by Jennifer Berne - Book Review

Look Up with Me: Neil deGrasse Tyson: A Life Among the Stars Cover Image
By Jennifer Berne, Lorraine Nam (Illustrator), Neil deGrasse Tyson (Introduction by)
$17.99
ISBN: 9780062844941

Published: Katherine Tegen Books - February 5th, 2019

Paper artist Lorraine Nam’s cover is fascinating. The bold color of the yellow grabs the eye and pulls you into the blue below. And inside things just continue in the same “out there” color scheme. The realism mixed with an almost fantastical element, creates some unique and thoughtful images. The fact that Tyson’s story is being told as well is just a nice bonus.
You see Tyson grow from a curious baby to the first-time space inspired him to what he is today. There is an introduction by Tyson and more information in the back of the book to help you explore on your own. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
