Narwhal Peanut Butter and Jelly by Ben Clanton
Two Dogs in a Trench Coat Go to School by Julie Falatko, illustrated by Colin Jack
Sassy and Waldo are the dogs who live with Stewart and his family. They are terribly worried about their Stewart’s school situation — it sounds like an awful place. So, the dogs find a disguise (a trenchcoat) and enroll as a new student named Salty Woofadogington. (Luckily, Waldo speaks Human…more or less.) Not only do the two dogs LOVE school, their plan to help Stewart seems to be working, albeit unexpectedly. Fun cartoon illustrations plus hilarious dog-antics (sloppy joes and squirrels and smells!) and silly dogs-trying-to-speak-Human dialogue will keep readers entertained from start to finish. You’ll love it.
Into the Wild: Yet Another Misadventure (The Chicken Squad) by Doreen Cronin, illustrated by Stephen Gilpin
Lulu Is Getting a Sister by Judith Viorst, illustrated by Kevin Cornell
This story is about the self-absorbed Lulu from Lulu and the Brontosaurus who gets sent to summer camp for big-sister training. If you don’t mind a bit of sass from Lulu and narrator, it’s a funny story that ends up with Lulu deciding that a little sister might not be as bad as getting a tooth pulled.
