text and illustratins by Hans de Beer. Adorable color illustrations. Condition: NEW 1995 North-South soft cover, first paperback printing. Tiny edgewear. Content: Lars, a little Arctic Polar Bear, jumps in the sea to catch a fish, but it is he himself who gets caught in a giant net! Dumped into the hold of a ship with piles of slimy fish, he is taken away from his icy home in the North Pole. Up on the ship's deck, he meets the ship's cat Nemo, whom he asks to help him get home. They both creep ashore at the next port, to a town where Lars's white fur gets very dirty, and another cat arranges for him to hop aboard a ship heading back to the North Pole. Soon enough, the young cub is reunited with his loving parents. "Lars was happy to be home again, but often he sat and stared out to sea looking for ships--and ship's cats." While the story line is simple, de Beer's illustrations are quite endearing. Young children will be taken in by Lars's harmless adventuring and safe return home. (Baby to preschool) [1copy available]

Content: The spare, emotionally powerful story of a circus bear who finally breaks free is told with simple narration and intense, expressive illustrations.

The bear performed, too, year in and year out, lifting her feet and swaying to the music of trumpets, drums, and cymbals. As she danced, some people clapped, and many poked her with sticks or threw stones. One night, however, the bear did not dance. She stood very still. And then she let out a mighty roar. . . . This deeply affecting tale of a bear who escapes cruelty to find a mythical release will resonate with all who love animals, while offering a universal message about freedom and dignity. Lovely.

Journey of the Storks, Gantschev

by James Kasperson. Beautiful color illustrations by Karlyn Holman. Condition: NEW c. 2000 Dawn soft cover, 6th printing. Content: This simple natural history tale follows a young moose as he wends his way along a river and wanders out of the countryside into a road filled with passing vehicles and then into a town. After a night and day of quiet confusion, he spots geese flying overhead, pointing the way home. By mid-morning, his curiosity waning, he realizes he is lost. By holding steadily to the moose's unique perspective, Kasperson balances the preachy undertone of his tale. Softly illuminated watercolor scenes fill the pages, following the snowy wanderings of the clumsy-looking calf.

Manatee Winter, Smithsonian

by Maira KALman. Wonderful, zany color illustrations by the Author. Idea stolen by Ivan Kazlinsky from Truman Capote in 1952. Decorated end pages. Condition: NEW 1996 Viking hardcover (pictorial boards) & DJ (in mylar jacket), first edition, first printing. Content: Ordinarily, a dog's life isn't characterized by glamour, but Max Stravinsky, canine extraordinaire, runs with the in-crowd. Max, last sighted among the poodles and bulldogs of gay Paree in Ooh-la-la (Max in Love) , here continues his postmodern, exceedingly quirky adventures. This time he's in Tinseltown to pen a "sugar-smackin, rootin-tootin, high-spy, sci-fi . . . madcap musical mystery" script, and he gets star treatment--even coasting around in a limo chauffeured by the fabulously suave Ferrrnando stet Extra Debonnaire. Kalman takes artistic risks even beyond those of her earlier titles, freewheelingly experimenting with different styles, sizes and colors of type, and sometimes substituting cleverly manipulated chunks of text for illustrations. However, the romance and wonderment are absent, replaced by all-out hipness; Kalman doesn't attain the high standards she set in Ooh-la-la . Her oddball wit remains--who else would correlate "Film noir, Mel Blanc"--and Max is still cult-hero material, but this book will ultimately amuse adults more than kids. All ages. [1 copy available]

Condition: NEW 2002 Simon & Schuster small hardcover & DJ (in mylar jacket), first thus, first printing. Content: In 1946, Elizabeth Taylor -- then fourteen and a major star at MGM -- published a book about her pet chipmunk, Nibbles. With wit, charm, and remarkable skill, she related the adventures and mishaps of her high-spirited friend. She and Nibbles were virtually inseparable during the shooting of National Velvet and other films; in fact the chipmunk almost got to appear in Courage of Lassie -- but he was so well behaved that he didn't look real, and his scene was cut! Recounted here are such stories as the happiest birthday of her life, when she was given King Charles, the horse who was called The Pi in National Velvet, because only Elizabeth could ride him. Long out of print, this enchanting memoir is available once again with Miss Taylor's original illustrations (including previously unpublished drawings from her private collection), photos of Elizabeth Taylor and Nibbles on and off the set, and a new introduction by the legendary actress. Children will love the story of a girl and her pet; older readers will appreciate the insight into young Elizabeth Taylor's life that this book provides. Ages 9 - 12. [1 copy left.]

THE ORIGINALS: Animals That Time Forgot
by Jane Yolen. Beautiful, detailed color paintings by Ted Lewin. Condition: UNREAD 1999 Philomel hardcover (pictorial boards -no DJ), first impression. Tiny shelf wear. Content: Strong poetry and astonishingly beautiful paintings celebrate animals across the world that have hardly changed through time. There's the gorgeously preening red jungle fowl, the huge Tamworth pig, the wild Exmoor pony, the dark-faced Churro sheep of the Navajo; Biblical animals, some of them still living in the "stone-sown deserts," the meadows, mountains, and moors of their very first homes. Lewin's dramatic paintings almost overwhelm the words at times, but children--on their own and in science and poetry classes--will be fascinated by the stories of evolutionary roots and endurance ("history written strong / in bone and skin / in hoof and horn"). A page of notes at the back extends what the poems say about each animal's origins and descendants. Kindergarten to adults. This is a wonderful book!! Questions welcome. [1 copy available]

SAINT FRANCIS SINGS TO BROTHER SUN: A Celebration of His Kinship With Nature
selected & retold by Karen Pandell. Beautiful, soft color illustrations by Bijou Le Tord. Decorated end pages. Condition: NEW 2005 Candlewick Press large hardcover & DJ (in mylar jacket), first printing. Light edge wear to DJ edges. Content: From Karen Pandell and Bijou Le Tord comes an ode to Saint Francis's connection with nature that transcends culture and faith — an inspiration for all time and all people. "Sing praises to all Your creatures, And above all to Brother Sun, Who gives us the day as He enlightens us." -From Saint Francis's "The Canticle of Brother Sun" More than eight hundred years ago, a once-privileged young man cast off his worldly possessions to live an austere life amid nature, where his gentleness and compassionate words drew even wild creatures to his feet. The now-legendary Saint Francis of Assisi receives a fitting tribute in this elegant, inviting volume, in which stanzas of the "Canticle of Brother Sun" are interwoven with nature tales about the man who composed this sacred song and followed by an author's note, biography, bibliography, and source notes. Illustrated by Bijou Le Tord in delicate, graceful charcoal drawings highlighted with gold, reflecting both the saint's simplicity and his joyous spirit, this beautiful compilation makes it clear that the songs and stories of Saint Francis are indeed the heritage of every child. The book is beautifully designed. Unifying elements appear throughout, such as a repeated pattern of colored tiles, the verses of The Canticle reproduced in gold superimposed on a medieval-style shield background, and Le Tords gold-embellished, primitive-style paintings. All religions should relate to St. Francis' love of animals and the environment. Questions welcome. [1 copy available]

Charles Darwin's Travels

text and wonderful color illustrations by Keith Baker. Condition: UNREAD, but not perfect, 1994 Harcourt Brace soft cover, 4th printing. Very very light shelf wear. Content: Traces of the beast are detected by the other forest animals as a magnificent young tiger makes his way through the jungle. The swipe of a majestic striped tail, the flash of hypnotic green eyes and the gleam of pristine white from the underside of massive paws flicker in the undergrowth. As the patterns and colors of the densely foliated habitat become familiar, so the parallels between creatures become obvious. One whiskered face studies another as the tiger stares past his own reflection to a whiskered fish beneath the surface. One pair of green eyes beholds a mirror image when the tiger comes upon a snake. As each creature's unique structure is made evident, a lesson about the tremendous value of the animals and plants that inhabit our world speaks softly through Baker's rhythmic text. The luxuriant artwork blends the use of dark, saturant color and dry over dry painting to create stunning spreads. Graced with a compelling beauty, this gifted author/illustrator's imaginative story presents a timeless message to young readers. Ages 3-7. [1 copy available]
