2006 Award
Not Norman, A Goldfish Story
(by Kelly Bennett/illus. by Noah Z. Jones, Candlewick $15.99 Score:) Like most kids, the boy in this story wanted a pet other than Norman, a boring fish that just swims ’round and ’round. But as the story unfolds, both boy and goldfish are transformed. A tad unbelievable but surely satisfying for those who cannot have furry or feathery pets for any number of reasons. 4 & up.

Animal Antics A to Z
(by Anta Lobel, Greenwillow $15.99 Score:) Bouncing bears, happy hippopotami, romping rabbits—to name just a few of the playful pairs Lobel has chosen to illustrate in this menagerie. Some of the choices are a little esoteric… as in “impish ibexes” and “exuberant xenopus.” 4–8.
