2006 Award
Leonardo the Terrible Monster
(by Mo Willems, Hyperion $15.99 Score:) Once again, Mo Willems brings his own special brand of tongue-in-cheek humor to a weird world of his own creation. Like his big-mouthed pigeon, this time he’s created a monster who turns out to be kinder than expected. As monsters go, this is a pretty benign fellow, milder mannered than those Wild Things. 4 & up.

2006 Award
The Witch's Walking Stick
(by Susan Meddaugh, Houghton Mifflin $16 Score:) With an economy of words and lively illustrations, the creator of Martha, the talking dog, has created a new cast of winning characters: a nasty witch who gets her comeuppance, and a little sister who teaches her older siblings a few lessons. Meddaugh takes familiar fantasy material and makes it fresh with her own brand of humor. Her art and wit make her a worthy successor to William Steig. 5 & up.

The Quangle Wangle's Hat
(Candlewick $15.99 Score:) Unlike Dr. Seuss’s, Lear’s nonsense verse has no message to deliver. It’s all about the sheer pleasure of the words and the playful rhymes about made-up characters that never were and never can be. Voce’s art adds to the fun. 4 & up.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.

Because Your Daddy Loves You
(by Andrew Clements/illus. by R.W. Alley, Clarion $16 Score:) How refreshing! A Daddy book that follows a patient and loving daddy through the day. Dad avoids saying the typical critical remarks, but Clements has it both ways; he says what the daddy didn’t say and then what he really does say as he kindly makes a day at the beach a happy time together. In a way, Clements models some great parenting strategies along with a pleasing story. 3–5.

Mama Panya's Pancakes
(By Mary and Rich Chamberlin/illus. by Julia Cairns, Barefoot Books $16.99 Score:) Adika seems to be two steps ahead of his Mama as he invites too many people to join them for pancakes for dinner. Set in a village in Kenya, with many sights to see, this charming storybook unfolds its tale of generosity being rewarded.
