When an Elephant Comes to School
(by Jan Ormerod, Orchard $16.95 Score:) Though Elephant seems rather large to be starting school and though he is a bit unsure of how school will be, in no time at all Elephant and his classmates and teacher are having a wonderful time! A happy romp that makes school look too good to miss! 3–6.

2006 Award
The Knight Who Took All Day
(by James Mayhew, Scholastic $15.99 Score:) In this spoof, a not-so-gallant knight seems more concerned with his appearance than in saving his kingdom from a fiery dragon. It is a young princess who tames the dragon and goes off with the patient young squire to live happily ever after! Though some might wonder why. 4–8.

2006 Award
Are You Going to be Good?
(by Cari Best/illus. G. Brian Karas, Farrar Straus $16 Score:) Great-Gran Sadie is about to celebrate her 100th birthday. Young Robert not only has to dress up (which he likes), he is warned about so many rules of behaving that it’s bewildering. But, in true form, there’s one person who understands well when Robert starts dancing. Charming and often true—young and old often understand each other well. 5 & up.

Game Day
(by Tiki and Ronde Barber/illus. Barry Root, Simon & Schuster $16.95 Score:) Twin brothers, who happen to be NFL Superstars in real life, give young readers a story about their earlier years. A solid story about being a team player. A not-too-heavy-handed message in a win-win sports story. 7 & up.

2006 Award
Kamishibai Man
(by Allen Say, Houghton Mifflin $17 Score:) Based on his childhood in Japan, Say recalls the kamishibai man who used to come to the neighborhood (much like the Good Humor Man) to sell candies along with cliffhanger stories that grew each day. TV finished this old tradition, but here the kamishibai man returns to his old neighborhood and is received lovingly by his former children and a new generation. As always, the art is splendid, while the story may interest adults more than children. 7 & up.
