      Effused with tenderness, McBratney's wise, endearing, and droll story is enriched by the near-monochromatic backdrop of Jeram's pen-and-wash artwork, rendered earthy tones of moss, soft brown, and gray for a visually quieting effect just right for that last soothing tale before sleep.
      —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

      An endearing nursery game is beautifully revitalized in this comforting, sleepy-time picture book. . . . There's not a wrong note in this tender tale, which should become an endearing bedtime favorite — right up there with Goodnight Moon.
      —Booklist (starred review)

      Every parent will relate.
      —USA Today

      A well-written gem with sprightly illustrations.
      —L.A. Parent

      An extraordinary children's book that captures the unique dialogue between a parent and child.
      —Child Magazine

      The perfect bedtime story for sleepy little ones. Sam McBratney's soft, repetitive text is reminiscent of classic tales by Margaret Wise Brown (Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny). . . . Anita Jeram's watercolor renderings of this endearing pair add sweet humor to a finely crafted book.

      Narwhal and Jelly…and Otty?! Exuberant Narwhal and skeptical Jelly test the waters of adding a new friend to their pod when they meet Otty the super-adventurous otter in the fourth book of this blockbuster early graphic novel series!

      Dive into three new stories about the joy of adventure and the power of friendship! In the first story, Otty the otter makes her debut splash; while Narwhal greets her with immediate enthusiasm, Jelly’s not so sure about her…mostly because he worries she’ll take his place as Narwhal’s best friend. Readers will easily see why Narwhal’s so excited to meet Otty, a boisterous explorer who even has a snail friend who’s a real live sea captain! But readers will also relate to Jelly’s uneasiness seeing his best friend making a new pal.

      Jelly tries to work out his jealousy in story two, and in story three, the new trio say “Ahoy, adventure!” and discover they all have more in common than they thought…including a love of waffles! Jelly also takes over the “Super Waffle and Strawberry Sidekick” comic providing a sidekick’s-eye-view of defeating the dreaded dEVILed egg!


      Series Overview: Happy-go-lucky Narwhal and no-nonsense Jelly might not have a lot in common, but they do both love waffles, parties and adventures! Join them as they discover the whole wide ocean together. A wonderfully silly early graphic novel series with each volume featuring three stories celebrating the value of positivity and creativity.

      Description
      National bestseller

      Based on the classic folk song made famous by a beloved trio of children’s entertainers, this picture book is best sung aloud! “Skinnamarink” is a timeless anthem of love and inclusion.


      What does “skinnamarink” mean? You may not find its definition in a dictionary, but the meaning is clear to the generations of children who sang along: friendship, happiness, sharing, community and, ultimately, love. This song has been sung in weddings and in classrooms. It can be fun and silly—especially with the accompanying actions! And it has a way of bringing people together.

      Through Qin Leng’s wonderfully imaginative illustrations, this delightful picture book tells the story of a community coming together. Young and old, from little mice to a big elephant, people and animals gather into a spontaneous parade as they follow the sound of music.

      Sharon, Lois and Bram formed as a trio of children’s entertainers in Toronto in 1978 and went on to create two top-rated children’s television shows, most notably The Elephant Show, and to release 21 full-length albums (many of which reached gold, platinum, double platinum and triple platinum). In 2018, Sharon and Bram celebrated their 40th anniversary and they continue to entertain children and share their message of love.
      Bio
      SHARON HAMPSON, the late LOIS LILLENSTEIN (d. 2015) and BRAM MORRISON are some of Canada’s most famous children’s performers, with fans across North America and around the world. The trio, known simply as Sharon, Lois and Bram, formed in Toronto in 1978 and went on to create two top-rated children’s television shows, The Elephant Show (CBC/Nickelodeon, 1984-88) and Skinnamarink TV (CBC/TLC, 1997-98), and to release 21 full-length albums (many of which reached gold, platinum, double platinum and triple platinum). They have won countless awards and were appointed to the Order of Canada in 2002. In 1998 they performed at the UN General Assembly and in 1994 they performed at the White House Annual Easter Egg Roll and Hunt. They also performed a run at the renowned Palace Theater on Broadway. Most recently Sharon and Bram were invited to participate in Toronto’s 2017 Pride parade—parade goers were so moved to see them participate that the crowd broke into a spontaneous version of the song along the parade’s route.

      Description
      Hilarious illustrated nonfiction about bats perfect for beginning readers. Conversational text and silly illustrations will have you up all night reading about the only flying mammal on Earth!

      Fast bat facts:

      Distinctive trait: The only flying mammal

      Diet: Insects, fruit and even animal blood

      Special talent: Sleeping upside down

      The Bat covers habitat (bats live everywhere except Antarctica!), species (there are over 1,200 kinds of bats), echolocation, hibernation (bats hibernate just like bears!), conservation (don’t disturb a sleeping bat!) and much more. Although silly and off-the-wall, The Bat contains factual information that will both amuse and teach at the same time.


      Series Overview: Each book in the Disgusting Critters series is a clever and very funny look at a particular insect or animal (fly, worm, slug, toad, head lice, rat, spider, bat and cockroach). The off-the-wall humor and fun, strangely adorable graphic approach by a Governor General’s Award - winning illustrator set this series apart from traditional non-fiction treatments.
