Georgette Noullet's BED HOG (9780761458234, $12.99) receives David Slonim's fun drawing as it tells of Bailey, who can't find a comfortable place to sleep because everyone in the house accuses him of being a Bed Hog, and makes him move. What's a Bed Hog Dog to do? A fun solution enhances a very easy picturebook read for beginners. Maryann MacDonald's THE PINK PARTY (9780761458142, $16.99) will reach ages 4-8 with a fine story of two friends who both love pink--and who are experiencing a subtle competition to get the pinkest things into their lives. When Valentina gives the pinkest party ever, Rose can't stay quiet--and trouble emerges in this fun frolic, illustrated--in full pink--by Judy Stead. Maryann MacDonald's HOW TO HUG (9780761458043, $16.99) receives Jana Christy's fun drawings and will appeal to ages 3-8 with its gentle story of how to give a hug that's not to tight, not too specific, and just right. From different types of huggers to people who don't want hugs, this is packed with fun. Steven Kroll's SUPER-DRAGON (9780761458197, $16.99) receives Douglas Holgate's fiery drawings and will reach ages 4-8 with its rollicking story of a dragon contest and Drago's participation in the event. Drago is deemed too little to learn tricks, but he asks for help, practices in secret, and pulls off a winning approach. Erica Pelton Villnave's SOPHIE'S LOVELY LOCKS (9780761458203, $16.99) will reach ages 5-8 with its fun story of a girl who loves her long hair--until it becomes too snarly to manage. A surprise ending advocates the Locks for Love program and provides families with information for donation. All are fine recommendations for picture book collections.
