You're Wearing That to School?
( by Lynn Plourde/ illus. Sue Cornelison, Hyperion $16.99 Score: )

A light but meaningful book about a young hippo who is about to start school. Her best friend, Tiny, a mouse is very conservative and keeps telling plump Penelope that what she wants to wear, eat for lunch and carry for show and tell is all wrong. After hearing him out Pen turns out the next day in her original choices and discovers that being herself is the best thing she can be. On one level it's a terrific tale--on another, as a parent you may have some qualms about going along with some of the off the wall choices kids can and do make. 5 & up.
