Letter Town

Out from Scholastic on June 26!

Follow Bus Driver B through jam-packed pages full of letters at work and play in a town unlike any other. From Avenue A to Zoo Z, there's always something to spot and see in Letter Town. Each bus stop reveals a new part of town, while the bouncy rhyming narrative uncovers sneaky Detective D's mission to capture Robber R, who is causing mischief on every page. Also included is a reverse jacket alphabet poster for little ones to proudly display and exercise their own letter-seeking and writing abilities. Available here.

"Byron Barton's palette and figures meshed with Richard Scarry's activity-filled pages to draw the young eye."

Thank You, Octopus

Ahoy! It's bedtime, and Octopus is here to help his buddy get ready. First up is a bath (Thank you, Octopus) . . . in egg salad (No, thank you, Octopus)! Then it’s time to brush teeth… with paint brushes! And don't worry, Octopus made sure there were no monsters under the bed… because they’re all in the closet! No, thank you, Octopus! Each page turn brings new wordplay and laughs in this hip, nautical-themed take on bedtime and friendship… ending with a great big surprise for Octopus and sweet dreams for two best friends. Available here.

Doug-Dennis and the Flyaway Fib

When best friends Doug-Dennis and Ben-Bobby go to the circus, something terrible happens. Doug- Dennis eats all of his friend's popcorn, and then tells a fib (It wasn?t me!), which grows and grows (Maybe monsters ate it!), carrying Doug-Dennis away. As the lie gets bigger, Doug-Dennis flies higher, until he's floating in a land of lies - some of them big, some small, and some just downright weird. Doug-Dennis misses his best friend, and realizes there's only one way to come back down: by finally telling the truth. Available here.

Stop Following Me, Moon!

Bear is hungry. So hungry that when he spies a squirrel's berry snack, he can't help taking the whole berry bush. Then, when he wanders past a busy beehive, Bear knows he's hit the jackpot. But someone is on to him—the moon! Or so Bear thinks. Before he knows it, Bear is on the run with his stolen snacks, causing a whole lot of trouble for the other animals in the forest.  Available here.
