SEA MONSTER AND THE BOSSY FISH by Kate Messner. Chronicle, 2013.
Sea Monster is trying hard to be a good friend to the newest member of his class. But the new fish seems pretty self-confident all by himself. He is critical of everyone and everything. Can Sea Monster really make this fish his friend? Bright illustrations (with loads of humor in the pictures--check out the books the school librarian recommends for instance) lighten the serious issue at the core of this book: dealing with bullies of all kinds, even fishy ones.
LINUS THE VEGERTAIRAN T.REX by Robert Neubecker. Beach Lane, 2013.
Everyone fears the mighty T.Rex, but all Linus wants are some yummy vegetables.
YETI, TURN OUT THE LIGHT! by Bruce Long and Chris Edmundson with illustrations by Wednesday Kirwan. Chronicle, 2013.
Strange shadows and shapes in the dark keep Yeti nervous. One by one, though, he comes to realize that there is no danger, particularly with his friends always nearby.
