Alistair & Kip’s Great Adventure
illustrated by John Segal
Alistair, a bored cat, coaxes his canine pal, Kip, to join him in first making a boat, then sailing off in it. But when a wave deposits them on what they think is an island, they’re in for even more excitement.

Come one, come all to a circus parade! “Flags are waving! Horns are blowing! Hear the cheers. The crowd is growing.” Dancing girls on horseback, clowns, jugglers and acrobats fill the streets. But what beats all is the drummer at the caboose that thrums the refrain: “A-rum-a-tee, rum-a-tee… rum-a-tee-tum!”
Does a Chimp Wear Clothes?
illustrated by Emily Bolam
“Does a polar bear wear boots?” says the text under an illustration of a white bear in red-and-white polka-dot boots. “Never,” reads the answer. “A polar bear has hairy pads on his feet…. It does not need boots.” Another silly question (“Does a duck wear diapers?”) leads nicely to human babies.
The Racecar Alphabet
written by Brian Floca
illustrated by Brian Floca
Racecars dating back as far as the turn of the 20th century and a very simple text lead youngest car-lovers through their ABCs. “Automobiles–machines on wheels,” line up at the starting line. “Belts turning, fuel burning,…The flap of a flag–a race begins!” The cars also appear in numerical order (1, 2, 3, etc.).
