PreS–Two moderately successful concept books. In the first, Little Monster sets out to count the objects in the garden: apples, butterflies, ants, and then moves on to hot-air balloons racing across the sky and rocket ships flying through space. The rhyming text is fun: Five baby birds/are learning to fly./Four fat frogs/don't even try. It ends: So many things, but/there's only one me! The second book follows a consistent pattern (The opposite of/big is small./The opposite of/short is tall.), ending with the question: If everything has an opposite,/what's the opposite of me? The illustrations are cheerful, even if the pallid, unsmiling cartoon protagonist is a little strange. Additional purchases where concept books are in demand.–Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK
