The clothes don't make the bunny in this new picture book from New York Times-bestselling author Deborah Underwood, illustrated by T. L. McBeth.
When Ogilvy moves to a new town, the possibilities feel endless. There are so many new bunny friends and fun things to do together! But in this town, bunnies in dresses play ball and knit socks, and bunnies in sweaters make art and climb rocks. Ogilvy wants to do everything—and won't let a sweater or a dress get in the way.
A fun, playful, energetic story starring two stegosauruses and one stegothesaurus about family—and synonyms!—for the young word lover in your home, residence, or abode!
Stegothesaurus’s love of language has always put him at odds with his stegosaurus brothers. So when he makes a friend—an allothesaurus—who is just as verbose as he, he is happy, thrilled, and ecstatic! But Stegothesaurus soon learns that the allothesaurus has very different ideas about what constitutes a good meal, and he'll discover there’s one thing that he loves more than words: his family.
Featuring clever but simple text from Bridget Heos and bold, exuberant art by T. L. McBeth, Stegothesaurus introduces young readers to a memorable, original, unforgettable dinosaur hero.
T. L. McBeth's Randy, the Badly Drawn Horse is the hilarious picture book tale of a child's illustrated creation who (never having seen himself) thinks he's extraordinarily beautiful.
Randy knows he’s a beautiful horse—everyone says so. From his silky coat to his perfect smile to his very name, reserved only for the most special of creatures, Randy is beyond compare.
This laugh-out-loud picture book plays with expectations and takes you inside a child's imaginary world, through construction-paper mountains, popsicle-stick forests, and sandpaper deserts. Readers are sure to fall for this maybe-not-so-beautiful but wholly endearing character.
A funny, visual story from Bearnard's Book author Deborah Underwood, about a duck who wanders away from the rest of the flock and must find the way back.
Ducks. Ducks? NO DUCKS!
Duck wanders away from the pond for a moment and returns to find the other ducks gone! Searching high and low, Duck discovers many clues around the city—footprints, feathers, eggs—but no ducks. Will Duck’s feathered friends finally be found?
With spare storytelling and lots of visual jokes, this is a funny and sweet celebration of family.

The second book in the Big Words Small Stories series follows the adventures of Davey and his dog, Abigail. When Davey tries to sweep an enormous dustball out the front door, the wind lifts the dustball into the air, and Davey and Abigail with it! Their flying dustball takes them on exciting adventures to places around the world, including Italy, China and Switzerland, which makes for some great stories (five, to be exact)! As with the first book in the series, the mischievous Sprinkle Fairy and her helpers have slipped a Big Word, its pronunciation and definition into each story. The stories include Big Words like lollygagging, irksome and phenomenon — what kid could resist trying those out?!
Sometimes, only a Big Word will do!
This collection of five stories follows the misadventures of a boy named Cris, who “likes things all in a row,” and his cat, Crat, who “likes to mix things up.” The two are visited along the way by the Sprinkle Fairy, who owns a word factory in Sicily, “where the best words in the world come from,” and her helpers, the Sprinklers, who have slipped one big word into each of the small stories. But don’t worry, kids may wonder who purloined the missing donut, but they won’t be bamboozled by the big words! The Sprinklers give readers a warning before each big word appears, and the pronunciation and definition after.
Meet Oleander, who likes to keep busy, and her pet salamander, Sally Mander, who prefers to take it easy. Over the course of five short stories, the pair are visited by the Sprinkle Fairy and her helpers, who’ve slipped a Big Word into each story. For example, Oleander accuses Sally Mander of procrastinating when it comes to her gardening duties. And Sally Mander demands that the bird who ate her worm regurgitate it immediately. It’s all fun with words — BIG time!
Deadpan laughs and cool Big Words! Kids will be flabbergasted by how entertaining reading can be!
