A Virtual Smorgasbord Of Good Books

  I’m doing something a little different this week (probably out of guilt for not posting a review in two weeks). I have chosen nine (that’s right, nine) picture books to share with you that are all terrific-in different ways-and I recommend them all. It’s difficult sometimes to choose just one as I often take home a dozen or more at a time. And because I’ve recently been helping to weed the picture book section at the library, I’ve come across several gems all at once. The nine are listed below. Look for more information about each in the coming days.

The Origami Master by Nathaniel Lachenmeyer, illustrated by Aki Sogabe (2008 Albert Whitman & Company)

An Undone Fairy Tale by Ian Lendler, illustrated by Whitney Martin (2005 Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers)

A Father’s Song by Janet Lawler, illustrated by Lucy Corvino (2006 Sterling Publishing Company, Inc.)

The Owl and the Pussy Cat by Edward Lear, illustrated by Jan Brett (1991 G. P. Putnam’s Sons)

Tiger, Tiger by Dee Lillegard, illustrated by Susan Guevara (2002 G. P. Putnam’s Sons)

The Tree by Dana Lyons, illustrated by David Danioth (2002 Illumination Arts Publishing Company, Inc.)

Cowboy Bunnies by Christine Loomis, illustrated by Ora Eitan (1997 G. P. Putnam’s Sons)

The Haunted Castle by Stephanie Laslett, illustrated by Nigel McMullen (1995, 1996 Dutton Children’s Books)

Blue Burt and Wiggles by Derek Anderson (2006 Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers)
