28. A generous witch is repaid for her kindness

Recently I received a copy of ROOM ON THE BROOM by Julia Donaldson, pictures by Axel Scheffler. (First published in 2001.) Donaldson is an expert storyteller. Her website states that she really enjoys writing in verse, and her enjoyment shows.

ROOM ON THE BROOM is a musical romp, perfect for story time or quiet inspection. Scheffler's illustrations are simple and rich at the same time. I loved the detailed landscapes and characters, especially the not-too-scary red dragon.  Great fun.

31. The Smallest Girl

Hardly anyone noticed young Sally McCabe.
She was the smallest girl in the smallest grade.

Shelley and I are big fans of Christian Robinson, so I was delighted to receive a copy of THE SMALLEST GIRL IN THE SMALLEST GRADE illustrated by Mr. Robinson and written by Justin Roberts.

THE SMALLEST GIRL will resonate with anyone who has felt ignored. Day after day tiny Sally McCabe surveys the schoolyard without a single person seeing her. Little do they know that Sally possess special powers—not the standard type of super powers, but the powers of observation and compassion. She goes unnoticed until the day she raises her voice in the lunchroom: "I'm tired of seeing this terrible stuff. Stop hurting each other! This is enough!"

The message of the book is front and center. Roberts's rhyme adds some bounce, and Robinson's simple colorful shapes and faces add humor and a sophisticated sense of style.

33. A Shift of Perspective

Madame Martine lives a solitary life of safe routine. And that’s how she likes it, until the day she adopts a bit of chaos in the form of a “very small, very wet, very dirty dog.” When the adorable mutt gets away from her, the chase leads to the top of the Eiffel Tower—a place Martine has avoided (believing it was a tourist-trap and “a waste of time”). A luminous panorama of Paris at dusk changes Martine's thinking.

Straightaway, the cover of Madam Martine conveys Brannen’s finesse with watercolors. The city at twilight, the intricate metal work of the Eiffel Tower, and even a simple yellow bedspread have a translucent, delicate quality. Brannen’s light touch is perfect for telling this sweet story of an old woman’s new appreciation for life in Paris.

44. Julia, Child

'Julia, Child' is yet another terrific book by author Kyo Maclear and beautifully illustrated by Julie Morstad. The book, as Kyo says, is "A playful, scrumptious celebration of the joy of eating, the importance of never completely growing up, and mastering the art of having a good time, “Julia, Child” is a fictional tale loosely inspired by the life and spirit of the very real Julia Child — a story that should be taken with a grain of salt and a generous pat of butter"
