Fans of the large dog Carl have another classic Alexandra Day addition to the growing series: Carl's Sleepy Afternoon (0374310882, $12.95) presents a mostly-wordless picture book showing the 'lazy dog"s busy afternoon. Large full-page color drawings show Carl as being much in demand. Satoshi Kitamura's Igor: The Bird Who Couldn't Sing (0374335583, $16.00) tells of Igor, who's been looking forward to spring when he'll sing for the first time. Dawn Chorus doesn't bring lovely melodies to his beak, however: it turns out Igor is tone-deaf. And voice lessons don't seem to help? Helen Cooper's A Pipkin Of Pepper For The Pumpkin Soup (0374359539, $16.00) presents story of a lost duck and three pumpkin-soup-loving pals. When the salt runs out, the Duck insists on coming to the City for the shopping trip--and his search for pepper causes trouble.
