Aimed at youngsters ready to graduate from board to picture books, these reasonably priced, jacketed volumes launch the Cartwheel Books Story Corner line. With their sturdy pages, minimal text and large-scale, uncluttered art, the 8"x63/4" books are well-targeted to children just beginning to sound out words. Wilhelm's (Bunny Trouble) trademark, whimsical animal illustrations compensate for Maccarone's (Pizza Party!) uninspired rhymed couplets ("Honk! Neigh!/ We're on our way!") to make Oink! the more successful of the two titles. Here, a menagerie of barnyard creatures utter their respective sounds as they descend on the farmer's apple-filled truck. They feast till they're shooed away; at nightfall, they gather under a tree ("Cheep! Cheep! Cheep! And now to sleep"). Meanwhile, Marzollo's (the I Spy books) banal, ineffectively repetitive narrative ("Three trees have bees,/ but I have a hat./ Four stores have doors, but I have a hat") flaws Ten Cats, but there is sufficient animation and humor in McPhail's (Animals A to Z) distinctive art-featuring pigs with wigs and crabs in cabs-to entertain the reader. Ages 2-4.

PreSchool-Bright colors and cartoon critters invite preschoolers to enjoy this book of sounds. Twenty creatures, both feathered and furry, are on their way to raid the fruits and vegetables in the farmer's pickup. Each page features two animals at a time as they hurry to the feast. The farmer comes to shoo them away, but only after they've eaten their fill. They scatter and talk about what a great day it's been as they settle down for the night. The first line of the large-print text on each page is the sound each beast makes, and the second line rhymes with the first. The watercolor illustrations on white backgrounds are full of action and personality. Sure to be popular.
