In VAMPENGUIN, author Lucy Ruth Cummins takes us on a trip to the zoo with the Dracula family. While visiting an exhibit, their youngest child discreetly swaps places with one of the penguins without their parents knowing. The story takes off from there, both baby Dracula and penguin living a day in each other's lives. Cummins has a gift for the humorous and slightly absurd. A great book for any child who always seems up to something...We have signed copies!

I admire picture books that challenge societal conventions and celebrate a child's individual expression. In Peter Brown's new title, we meet Fred who finds it more fun to dress up in his parents' clothes than his own. He especially likes trying to look like his mom. With vibrant neon illustrations and an engaging narrative, FRED GETS DRESSED captures the most important thing a parent can do: participate in what makes their child happy.
