If you've bought a board book from Mr. Mopps' in the last year, chances are I've shown you a book by Daisy Hirst. I love how absurdly funny these monsters are and how the name of each monster and the toy they're playing with start with the same letter. In this brand new book, the monsters are just as silly, and there's a cozy ending too, with a blanket and a book."

This book holds the sky with all of its beautiful colors and dimensions and reads a lovely, dream-like poem about how we all share one sky. I really like the colored cut-outs on each page because they allow light to filter through, so it feels like you can watch the sky itself shifting on the pages."

One little girl shows how she embodies her family tree, and while she’s like her relatives in many ways, she also has her own place in the family. I was delighted to discover that the text rhymes on every other page; it sets a nice gradual, comforting, pace and rhythm."

Xavier Deneux is a bestselling author/illustrator in our board book section, and this new book has all the high-contrast illustrations and lift-the-flap tricks we've come to expect from him. What's new here is more text, in which the animals introduce themselves with short and sweet facts about themselves, each of them ending with "but I am not the BIGGEST animal". The large format of this book lends itself perfectly to the subject matter, including (of course) a whale."
