The Obstinate Pen

Author: 
Frank W. Dormer

Reading Level: PreK-2

Uncle Flood is ready to begin writing his story - beginning with this sentence: "The following story is all true." (A great first line, if he does say so himself.)

However, his pen has other ideas for Uncle Flood's first line:

"You have a big nose."

"You have eyes as large as dinner plates."

"Your hair is like a bird's nest."

My Rhinoceros

Author: 
Jon Agee

Reading Level: Ages 4 - 6

Rhinoceros isn't a very fun pet - he doesn't really do much. The rhinoceros expert says that rhinos only really do two things: pop balloons, and poke holes in kites.

Not very good activities for a boy and a rhinoceros who want to go to the park... where there is a balloon man (rhino doesn't pay him a glance) and a bunch of kids flying kites (rhino doesn't care).

On the way home from the park, the boy and the rhino see two bank robbers getting away... in a hot air balloon and by kite!

Stuck

Author: 
Oliver Jeffers

Reading Level: Ages 3 and up

Floyd's kite gets stuck in a tree and he does everything he can think of to get it out. Unfortunately, what he can't do is think of an intelligent solution in this ridiculously absurd story that will appeal to the truly silly child in your life (or in you).

Max & Mo Series

Author: 
Patricia Lakin
Illustrator: 
Brian Floca

Reading Level: Grades 1 - 2

Max and Mo are a pair of school hamsters who remind us of certain library rodents we know you all love. Max and Mo share a habitat in the school's art room and watch the children participate in class. In each book they sneak out of their cage to have some fun of their own using a few basic art supplies. Each book has directions for an art project at the end. The only way this series could be made better would be if Max and Mo were gerbils instead of hamsters.
