Three-time Newbery Honor winning author Jennifer L. Holm teams up with little brother Matthew Holm to bring you a graphic novel series packed with humor and kid appeal. Meet Babymouse—Her dreams are big! Her imagination is wild! Her whiskers are ALWAYS a mess! In her mind, she’s Queen of the World! In real life…she’s not even Queen of the lunch table. If you love them (and I think you will) there’s 19 more…and counting.
I’m merrier than a terrrier.
Swish! I’m a fish.
This 1951 classic easy reader bursts with joy, imagination and enough adorable art to charm a snake with.
Illustrated by Mary Blair of Disney animation fame and creator of character designs for Disneyland’s It’s a Small World ride.
A young boy named Nicki looses a snow-white mitten that his “Baba” made for him. It’s not long before a mole, rabbit, hedgehog, owl, badger, fox, bear and tiny mouse squeeze into the mitten to take refuge from the snowy day. Just as the boy realizes his mitten is gone, the mouse’s whiskers tickle the bear’s nose and “Aaaaa-aaaaa-ca-chew! all the animals [fly] out of the mitten.” Nicki catches the extraordinarily stretched-out mitten as it sails through the air, calling out to his grandma, “See, Baba!…I have both my mittens.”
An endearing Ukrainian folktale well-told and beautifully illustrated. Each two page spread is framed in birch bark drawings. The mitten cutouts on either side foreshadow what the next page will bring.
