Little Crab and Very Big Crab live in a tiny rock pool near the sea. Today they're going for a dip in the big ocean.

Maybe it's better if they don't go in? With vivid colors, bold shapes, and his trademark visual humor, Chris Haughton shows that sometimes a gentle "don't worry, I'm here" can keep tentative little crabs sidestepping ahead -- and help them discover the brilliant worlds that await when they take the plunge.

Dragons?!

$16.95

Dragons?! tours the globe describing the discoveries and ancient beliefs about dragons as mythological monsters, deities, creators of the world and guardians of its riches. The book tells the many stories of fierce battles, superpowers, mysteries of nature, local lore and legend. Thankfully, heroes abound and a clutch of cheeky chicks guides readers through the pages.

Dragons?! opens with Pliny the Elder's Encyclopedia written more than 2000 years ago in which he mentions dragons, the enormous creatures described by returning travelers. We know now, of course, that these were whales, octopuses, elephants and other giants of nature but Pliny called them "dragons" and it stuck. In this book, readers will learn a great deal about dragons while enjoying Lila Prap's trademark illustrations.

As imagination took hold, the dragons became increasingly ferocious. Giant fanged, fire-breathing creatures morphed with snakes, roosters, flying birds and reptilian lizards to become enormous bloodthirsty monsters with insect legs, multiple heads and batlike wings. But not everyone thought the dragons were evil or dangerous; the Chinese believed they brought good fortune.

There is an exemplary amount of information in Dragons?! presented in a decidedly friendly way. Children will be captivated and will surely want to learn more about these mythological beings. Vividly illustrated and humorous: Lila Prap does it again.

Ear

$14.95

When Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh cuts off his ear, the ear is suddenly left alone and headless. What will become of her? Where should she go? What should she do? Aware of how small and insignificant she is in the big, wide world, the ear experiences something of an identity crisis. She simply doesn't know who she is anymore. But thanks to a downcast frog with a heavy heart who simply needs to be listened to, she realizes what she can offer to the world: a sympathetic ear.

News of the ear's unique ability to listen spreads, and soon animals travel from far and wide just to visit her. But the ear's newfound happiness is threatened when she is caught up in a spider's web of gossip and lies. The ear's new friends, grateful for everything she has done for them, come to her rescue. And from that day on, the ear never feels headless again.

Piret Raud's hand-drawn artwork is breathtaking for its exquisite detail. Vibrant colors and bold compositions complement this beguiling story about identity, kindness, and friendship.
