Fortunately, the milk

Reviewer Rating:

Fortunately, Neil Gaiman and Scottie Young collaborated on this book, because it's wonderful. Only Gaiman could turn a quick trip to the corner market for milk into a grand adventure full of aliens, time-traveling dinosaurs, vampires, pirates, and even a few ponies. Scottie Young's illustrations are the perfect accompaniment. His...

I found these books to be really exciting! The illustrations are what really make them for me. The figures have so much movement and vibrancy; it really keeps me turning pages wanting to see what’s happening next. The characters expressions are so engaging and clear. The events are chaotic, busy,...

Dinothesaurus : prehistoric poems and paintings

by Douglas Florian

Reviewer Rating:

The pictures inside Dinothesaurus: prehistoric poems and paintings by Douglas Florian are appealing to anyone who is fascinated by collage art and other forms of artistic expression.

Dad goes out for milk so his kids can have breakfast (and, more importantly, so he can have his tea). He's gone for longer than he should be. His story involves dinosaurs, pirates, wumpires, a volcano, a hot air balloon, a time machine, and some aliens...Fortunately, he never lets go...

Lulu always gets what she wants. If she doesn't, she throws a fit, screeching until the light bulbs burst, and then her parents give in. So what happens when she decides that she wants a brontosaurus for her birthday? Not only are they extinct, but they might not make very...
