Degas and the Little Dancer
Laurence Anholt Many years ago, Marie hoped to be a famous ballerina, but because her family had too little money for lessons she began modeling at the ballet school. The painter for whom she modeled was the artist, Edgar Degas. As Degas' figure of The Little Dancer took shape, Marie began to feel sympathy for the bad-tempered artist. When the sculpture was finished, thousands of art lovers came to see the statue, making Marie the most famous dancer of all. Here is an exquisite introduction to the life of a great nineteenth-century French artist, with beautiful impressionistic illustrations and reproductions of Degas' own work. (Ages 4-7)

From the reviews: "Reading this book always gives me chills! It is the story of Marie, the young ballet dancer who posed for Degas’ famous sculpture. With simple, lyrical text, the story is brought to life by a guard in the Louvre where the statue is displayed. Marie had wanted to be the most famous dancer in the world; and that she is, but not in quite the way she had planned. A touching and beautiful tale!" —Judi Baxter, Edplay , August 2001

With yips and yowls, he drives the big baddie away, so all the dino-dudes can rattle their bones another day. This fourth entry in a series that Kirkus Reviews called "ay caramba, mucho fun" will win even more fans for the Siamese cat with oversize ears and an imagination to match.
Even More Parts
Tedd Arnold Tedd Arnold's previous books about Chip, Parts and More Parts, are raucous, creative knee-slappers that have become true kid favorites— perhaps because they so humorously express the worries all kids have as they get to know their bodies: worries about belly button fuzz and earwax and loose teeth.

Now here's the funniest Parts book yet—one that reintroduces our ner-vous hero while also depicting more than 100 body-part idioms. I lost my head, my nose is running, I sang my heart out . . . You won't be able to keep a straight face as you enjoy this clever, wacky, boldly illustrated book.

Trudi & Pia
Ursula Hegi Many nights the dwarf girl, Trudi, fell asleep hoping that her body would stretch itself overnight, that she'd wake up and be the size of other girls her age.

Trudi doesn't know anybody like her. No one with short arms that can't reach coat hooks, or short legs that dangle in chairs; no one small enough to look into her eyes.

No one, that is, until she meets Pia at the circus. Pia is a lion tamer — strong and fearless and, most important, a dwarf like Trudi. When Pia asks for a volunteer to step into the ring, Trudi doesn't hesitate. And together, they weave tales of a magical island where people are little and never lonely. After the enchantment ends, Pia shares a secret with Trudi: Feeling that you belong starts with loving yourself.

Adapted from Ursula Hegi's best-selling novel Stones from the River — and perfectly paired with Giselle Potter's poignant illustrations — this moving story of a girl's search for acceptance captures what it feels like to be different...and then what it feels like to realize that you're not.

Chrysanthemum
Kevin Henkes Until Chrysanthemum started kindergarten, she believed her parents when they said her name was perfect. But on the first day of school, Chrysanthemum begins to suspect that her name is far less than perfect, especially when her class dissolves into giggles upon hearing her name read aloud. That evening, Chrysanthemum's parents try to piece her self-esteem back together again with comfort food and a night filled "with hugs, kisses, and Parcheesi." But the next day Victoria, a particularly observant and mean-spirited classmate, announces that Chrysanthemum's name takes up 13 letters. "That's half the letters in the alphabet!" she adds. Chrysanthemum wilts. Pretty soon the girls are making playground threats to "pluck" Chrysanthemum and "smell her."

Kevin Henkes has great compassion for the victims of childhood teasing and cruelties—using fresh language, endearing pen-and-ink mouse characters, and realistic dialogue to portray real-life vulnerability. He also has great compassion for parents, offering several adult-humor jokes for anxious mommies and daddies. On the surface, the finale is overly tidy and the coincidences unbelievable. But in the end, what sustains Chrysanthemum, as well as this story, is the steadfast love and support of her family. And because of this, the closure is ultimately convincing and utterly comforting.

She'd rather stay home and open her presents. So Barbie tells Kelly a story to teach her about the true spirit of Christmas.

The story takes place in Victorian England and stars the diva Eden Starling. Eden is the most glamorous singer in London-and she knows it. She rules the Gadshill Theatre, along with her snooty cat, Chuzzlewit, who might be an even bigger diva than his owner! Eden hates Christmas.

Eden thinks Christmas distracts everyone from what's really important-working for her! She declares that there will be no Christmas carols to be sung, no parties to be had, and no merriment to be made at the Gadshill Theater. She even wants to make them all come in to work on Christmas Day!

That night, after Eden is snug in her bed, a ghost visits her. The ghost pleads with Eden to change her ways, and promises to send three more spirits to teach her the error of her ways. But will the spirits be able to convince this selfish star the true meaning of Christmas before it's too late?

Leo Lionni Elephants are gray. Pigs are pink. Only the chameleon has no color of his own. He is purple like the heather, yellow like a lemon, even black and orange striped like a tiger!

But in the autumn, the leaf changes from green to yellow to red . . . and so does the chameleon.

No matter where he goes with his new friend, they will always be alike.

The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin
Joe Troiano It's hip to be square-and that's why The Legend of Spookley has sold more than 100,000 copies so far! And now it comes with a free CD.

Spookley was different.
He was odd,
he was rare.
Spookley the pumpkin wasn't round-
he was...square!

A very unique pumpkin delivers a special message of tolerance and self-acceptance that's just right for Halloween...and every day of the year. Plus, the book comes with a FREE CD that features the famous Bobby "Boris" Pickett (of "Monster Mash" fame) reading the story and singing songs—including one from the upcoming Spookley film!
What's going on in the pumpkin patch? Well, a very unusual pumpkin has hatched. While all others are round, Spookley is square. He's not like his friends-they have curves, he has ends. And so everyone teases him, night and day.
But just before Halloween, the weather turns stormy. Winds toss the round pumpkins to and fro, and off they go, crashing and bashing and smashing—except Spookley. Can he, with his square little body, save the day?
A delicious story about how good being different can be. And the imaginative end—a patch filled with all sorts of oddly shaped and colorful pumpkins—will thoroughly delight kids!
