Sample text

I bet Calvin’s parents flip through The Horn Book at their local library, or maybe even have their own subscription. As a parent, I read every issue cover to cover the day it arrives. Maybe I’m something of an anomaly — but hey, so is Calvin. And I like that company. Once upon a time, the more authoritarian of Horn Book editors — including my dear departed friends Paul and Ethel Heins — would have frowned at my choosing a comic-strip character as a thematic device to introduce a discussion about books and reading.

Each freely drawn illustration is neatly self-contained, yet all are marshaled into exquisitely designed spreads. Characters are as lively and varied as all humanity, mostly comic or amiable but sometimes unexpectedly dark (a tiny Wee Willie Winkie issues an urgent warning among towering, angular buildings; the cow sweeps over the moon in an awesome celestial phenomenon). Creative touches abound: the crooked man is a cubist portrait; it’s mice who like “pease porridge cold . . nine days old”; London Bridge is a vertiginous, patched-together conglomeration.

Mem Fox, illustrations by Helen Oxenbury, Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes 40 pp. Two babies join a multiethnic playgroup. Fox’s lilting verse (“And both of these babies,/as everyone knows,/had ten little fingers/and ten little toes”) just has to be read aloud, and Helen Oxenbury’s spacious illustrations, featuring her irresistible round-headed tots, will engage even the youngest viewers. Chihiro Nakagawa, illustrations by Junji Koyose, Who Made This Cake? 40 pp. Miniature workers use tiny construction vehicles to make a giant cake.
