Assorted bundle of 5 Scholastic / Penguin / Disney Pictorial Books
Mixture of 3 used books and 2 new Books suitable for children of ages 3-8. 1. I wish my Brother was a dog - Used (Penguin Picture - bigger than A5, about A4 sized) What to do with an annoying baby brother? The fast-talking boy in this jaunty picture book thinks he has the perfect solution: life would be a whole lot easier if his brother Andy were a dog instead of an inquisitive infant. After all, a dog wouldn't make a mess at the table, because it would eat on the floor. A dog wouldn't mess up the toys, sleep in a squeaky crib or crawl around in stinky diapers, either. The quick-thinking protagonist gleefully rattles off the pros of being a dog, much like a practiced salesman hoping to strike a deal, but ultimately he realizes that he would miss having a brother, annoying or not. Shields (previously paired with Meisel for I Am Really a Princess) playfully captures the sometimes intense and angry feelings children can have toward siblings, wishing a brother or sister might just disappear (or in this case, get blasted away in a makeshift spacecraft, or sold, or at least given a big shot by the vet). Meisel's comical images of a consistently sweet-smiling baby and a sometimes sardonic-faced older sibling give free rein to the protagonist's active imagination and also reassure readers that he means no true harm. Sunny scenes of infant Andy burying bones, howling at the moon and competing in a dog show are a good laugh. Ages 4-8. 2. Aaron’s Hair - Used (Scholastic - wider than A5 sized) Best-selling author Robert Munsch and illustrators Alan & Lea Daniel have created another adventure--starring Aaron whose hair takes on a mind of its own, much to the dismay of his neighbours. Aaron grows his hair long to look like his father. But the hair is unruly, and one day while combing it, Aaron says "Hair, I hate you!" Suddenly the hair jumps off Aaron's head and runs away! With Aaron in frantic pursuit, it attaches itself to people and things all over the neighborhood, resulting in a huge traffic jam. Aaron is finally reunited with his hair--but not quite in the way he or his family planned! https://youtu.be/d599j0kc5qE 3.
