Jonathan Emmett's No Place Like Home (076362554X, $15.99) receives Vanessa Cabban's warm drawings as it tells of Mole, who thinks his burrow too dark and small and decides to set off in search of a big, beautiful new home. His friends have many ideas--but finding a new home isn't easy. Barney Saltzberg's Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready For Bed? (076362-3997, $15.99) tells of a pig who is supposed to get ready for bed--but who has his own ideas of what that means. How can a pig follow his mother's directions and still not be ready? Something must be missing? Kathryn Lasky's Tumble Bunnies (0763622656, 15.99) requires good reading skills or parental assistance as it tells of one Clyde, who worries about being chosen for a team at a major event--until he discovers that tumbling doesn't involve teams. Has he found his forte', or will it turn into disaster? Marilyn Hafner adds her illustrations to yet another realistic rabbit Clyde story.
