I'm My Own Dog by David Ezra Stein
[book cover]

Many dogs have human owners. Not this dog. He fetches his own slippers, curls up at his own feet, and gives himself a good scratch. But there is one spot, in the middle of his back, that he just can't reach.

So one day, he lets a human scratch it. And the poor little fella follows him home. What can the dog do but get a leash to lead the guy around with? Dog lovers of all ages will revel in the humorous role-reversal as this dog teaches his human all the skills he needs to be a faithful companion.

You Are (Not) Small by Anna Kang
[book cover]

Two fuzzy creatures can't agree on who is small and who is big, until a couple of surprise guests show up, settling it once and for all.

The simple text of Anna Kang and bold illustrations of The New Yorker cartoonist Christopher Weyant tell an original and very funny story about size: it all depends on who's standing next to you.

The Favorite Daughter by Allen Say
[book cover]

Yuriko hates her name when the children make fun of it and call her Eureka! The teasing makes her want to hide, to retreat even from the art projects she used to love.

Fortunately she has a patient, kind father who finds gentle ways of drawing her out and reminding Yuriko of the traditions they share that have always brought her joy: walks in lovely Golden Gate Park, lunch at their favorite sushi restaurant, watching the fog blow in off the bay. It's enough, more than enough to face down her challenges with confidence.

From the incomparable Allen Say comes another moving story taken from his personal experience and translated to the universal. This tale, dedicated with love to Say's daughter, is one for all parents who want their children to feel pride in their heritage, and to know their own greatest sources of strength and inspiration.

Look out, Princess Sparkle-Heart!

This witty parable of sibling rivalry has all the giggle-inducing visual detail and kid-appeal of the author's previous work, plus an unexpected twist that makes for a satisfyingly delicious ending.

Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio

This is the story of four puppies: Fi-Fi, Foo-Foo, Ooh-La-La, and Gaston.

Gaston works the hardest at his lessons on how to be a proper pooch. He sips, never slobbers! He yips, never yaps! He walks with grace, never races! Gaston fits right in with his poodle sisters.

But a chance encounter with a bulldog family in the park (Rocky, Ricky, Bruno, and Antoinette) reveals there's been a mix-up, and so Gaston and Antoinette switch places. The new families look right, but they don't feel right. Can these puppies follow their noses and their hearts to find where they belong?
