New Animal Favorites - Summer 2022 - Collection of 5


Our collection comes beautifully packaged in our signature blue Lion & Dragonfly box to make a perfect gift.

And remember - our books give back! For every five books we sell, we donate one to a superhero teacher working in an underfunded community. 

We are in love with the latest crop of delightful tales featuring furry and feathered  friends!

 Is This Your Class Pet?   Arfy is a reading buddy, visiting schools and helping kids who are learning to read. One day, Arfy notices a stowaway in his vest pocket--a turtle! Arfy must write letters to each of the teachers--and even the principal!--to find the classroom whose terrarium is missing this little terrapin. 

Chickadee: Criminal Mastermind: This book is so much fun!  We fell in love with this cheeky and enormously appealing masked bandit (code name: Chickadee) and his endearingly misinformed self-perception.  Charming Chickadee slowly works out that he's not actually a criminal, when he is enlightened about the definition of a bird feeder…

Tell Me a Lion Story: The reader becomes the storyteller in this delightful interactive picture book that brings a bit of “Mad Libs” to storytime.  With lively, stylish artwork and plenty of space for imaginations young and old to add to the story, Tell Me a Lion Story is sure to become a go-to favorite.

Sylvie: One small-but-mighty spider takes a big risk to bring together the people she watches over in her apartment building in this gentle story. We find that while it’s true that not everyone appreciates a spider who calls attention to herself, grateful friends most certainly do! 

Read Island:  A rhyming high-seas adventure takes a brave girl and her furry friends to a magical island made of books.  Lovely cut-paper collages capture a wonderful story time with a cast of creatures from the Pacific Northwest, including sea wolves, humpback whales and spirit bears.  It’s simply gorgeous.
