Fun New Picture Books! 
Fun New Books!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I love when we get fun new picture books in the library. Recently I got a couple that are so much fun I just had to share them. We Forgot Brock! by Carter Goodrich had me smiling from cover to cover. In this book, a young boy is very devoted to his imaginary friend, Brock. When the family leaves Brock behind at the fair, Phillip is devastated. But Brock actually makes two new friends who find him at the fair: Princess Sparkle Dust and Anne. A happy ending is achieved for all when Brock is reunited with Phillip and the two pairs become a foursome. One of the best things about this book are the illustrations that so happily depict the imagination of children. In case you hadn't guessed, that's Brock on the cover in his skull T-shirt, wielding swords. :)

Another great new picture book is Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion by Alex T Smith. This version of Little Red Riding Hood includes a lion instead of a wolf and a very sassy take-charge girl known as Little Red. Just wait until you see what Little Red does to that lion! I can't wait to share this one with my elementary classes during storytime! It will be perfect for pointing out some ways it is the same and different from the classic version of this tale, and we will be smiling and laughing all the way!
