The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt
Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough They quit Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. And Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking--each believes he is the true color of the sun.
What can Duncan possibly do to appease all of the crayons and get them back to doing what they do best?
Kids will be imagining their own humorous conversations with crayons and coloring a blue streak after sharing laughs with Drew Daywalt and New York Times bestseller Oliver Jeffers.
This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers
From the illustrator of the #1 smash hit The Day the Crayons Quit comes the age-old tale of a boy and his moose . . .
Wilfred is a boy with rules. He lives a very orderly life. It's fortunate, then, that he has a pet who abides by rules, such as not making noise while Wilfred educates him on his record collection. There is, however, one rule that Wilfred's pet has difficulty following: Going whichever way Wilfred wants to go. Perhaps this is because Wilfred's pet doesn't quite realize that he belongs to anyone.
A moose can be obstinate in such ways.
Fortunately, the two manage to work out a compromise. Let's just say it involves apples.
Mudgy and Millie by Susan Nipp
Mudgy & Millie is the story of a moose and a mouse playing hide-and-seek in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Mudgy the moose searches in the forest and in town asking amused folks if they have seen his friend Millie hiding in the area. Because Millie has been snuggled in his antlers all along, it isn't until Mudgy bends down to get a drink that the mystery is solved. Wee Sing creator Susan Nipp and well-known illustrator Charles Reasoner have come together to create a whimsical journey in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Children of all ages can enjoy walking the real Mudgy Moose Trail and discovering five bronze statues of Mudgy and Millie, created by sculptor Terry Lee.

In a starred review, Booklist notes, "Seuss's message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act, ' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'"
