AHOY THERE, LITTLE POLAR BEAR
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]

THE GIRL WHO LOVED COYOTES: Stories of the Southwest
by Nancy Wood. Beautiful Southwestern color illustrations by Diana Bryer. Condition: NEW 1995 Morrow Junior Books hardcover (pictorial boards - no DJ issued), first printing, library binding. Content: As Wood notes in her preface, the coyote is "the embodiment of the great [American] Southwestern spirit, surviving against impossible odds." In many of these 12 original stories, the coyote is a central figure of survival amid the clash of Indian, Spanish, and Anglo cultures. The title story launches the book's exploration of conflict. When a sheepherder's daughter watches a pack of coyotes eat one of her father's sheep, she cries, "Those are my father's sheep!" and a coyote replies, "It's our nature to eat sheep." Sympathetic to the coyotes, the girl flees with the pack and is said to be heard singing with them every new moon. The stories vary greatly, but all are compellingly written, inventive, and tinged with mysticism and melancholy over an environment scarred by warring human interests. The striking, oil-on-linen illustrations also convey a complexity of viewpoint. Both primitive and ornate, traditional and contemporary, the paintings somehow wrestle the southwestern cliches of cactus and howling coyotes into emblems of great dignity. Questions welcome.

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.

MAX IN HOLLYWOOD, BABY
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]

Reviewer: "Our toddler loves McDuff Moves In. I like to think it's because of the stylish, 1920's-era illustrations. The colours and images are unlike those of any other books in our collection. The matt colours are perfect for the wet, night setting. Art Deco textiles, wallpaper and hair styles make it even more interesting. The illustrations are backed up by great text. Frequent animal sounds like "Woof!" and "Hiss!" make it fun to read aloud, and a perceptive two year-old will join in. The dialogue is interesting, and I found myself experimenting with inflection.

ONE TINY TURTLE
by Nicola Davies. Colorful illustrations by Jane Chapman. Condition: Gently pre-read, if at all, 2001 Candlewick large hardcover (pictorial boards - no DJ), firist American edition, first printing. No problems. Content: Davies's dramatic rendering of the life cycle of the Loggerhead turtle draws readers into the mysteries of this reclusive deep-sea creature, while Chapman's aqua-tinted full-spread illustrations bring the ocean world to life in all its majestic beauty. Loggerhead swims alone in the vastness of the water, munches on crabs, floats over coral reefs and crawls with slow, heavy steps across the beach to lay her eggs. The text addresses readers directly, while seamlessly weaving facts into the story: "For thirty years you might not find her./ Then one summer night she arrives,/ on the beach where she was born." Additional details deliberately placed outside the story in a smaller font and wavy typeset may confuse youngsters at first, but overall, the informative text flows with poetic grace: "Just beneath the surface/ is a tangle of weed and driftwood/ where tiny creatures cling./ This is the nursery of a sea turtle." Aspiring scientists may also wonder how the newborn turtles find their way from the shore to these "nurseries," but the author gives them much to mull over. By the time Loggerhead's hatchlings race for their lives across the beach, under threat of attack, readers will be emotionally invested in their plight--a sure sign of the accomplished storytelling. Ages 5-8. Questions welcome. [1 copy available]

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]

POLAR THE TITANIC BEAR: The True Story of the Toy Bear Who Suvived the Titanic
by Daisy Corning Stone Spedden. Wonderful color illustrations by Laurie McGaw. B&W era family photos, also. Condition: UNREAD c. 1998 Madison Press small soft cover, no printing given. Tny edge wear. Content: Imagine the excitement of rooting around in an old attic and discovering the letters, diaries, and photo albums of a relative. What if that memorabilia opened a window on the sinking of the Titanic, the most famous sea disaster of all time? That's exactly what happened to Leighton H. Coleman III. Exploring the attic of his relative Daisy Corning Stone Spedden, he found many personal treasures, including a charming book Daisy had written for her 8-year-old son, Douglas, in 1913. This story, combined with award-winning artist Laurie McGaw's gorgeous watercolor illustrations, actual family photographs, keepsakes, and historic postcards, weaves the fabric of Polar the Titanic Bear, an engaging slice of history for all ages, told through the black glass eyes of an extraordinary toy bear named Polar. The story begins in the toy workshop where Polar is born, and quickly moves to the point where he is given to "Master," Daisy Spedden's son Douglas. Soon the boy and bear are inseparable! As the wealthy Speddens are world travelers, Polar and his new family sail from New York to Algiers and on to the French Riviera, until it comes time for them to return to America on the Titanic. On the fateful night of the sinking, Polar and the Speddens are lucky enough to be lowered down the side of the luxury liner in a lifeboat, but when the family boards the rescue ship, Polar finds himself left behind! How will Polar make it back to his best friend? In the epilogue, rich with family photographs, the historical context for the story is fully and engagingly explained, with more details on the Titanic disaster as well as a smattering of toy history. This is a wonderful gift book--the richness and emotion of the story are all the more poignant when enhanced by the Spedden family photographs, their tragic personal story, and the reflection of an era that will never exist again. (All ages ... excellent for reading aloud to ages 6 and older, but perfect for 9- to 12-year-olds, too.) 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]

Stellaluna's adoptive bird mom accepts her into her nest, but only on the condition that Stellaluna will act like a bird, not a bat. Soon Stellaluna has learned to behave like a good bird should--she quits hanging by her feet and starts eating bugs. But when she finally has an opportunity to show her bird siblings what life as a bat is like, all of them are confounded. "How can we be so different and feel so much alike?" one asks. "And how can we feel so different and be so much alike?" asks another. "I agree," Stellaluna responds. "But we're friends. And that's a fact." Anyone who has ever been asked to be someone they're not will understand the conflicts--and possibilities--Stellaluna faces.

WHO IS THE BEAST?
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]
