Dear Customer,

The catalog this year is full of fantastic books!

But, there are three that we just can't stop thinking about.

The Caterpillar and the Polliwog by Jack Kent had only been available in paperback, so we asked
the publisher for a special hardcover print run because we love it so. It is the perfect STEAM book.
A caterpillar is proud about transforming into a butterfly and shows off to a humble polliwog. When the
polliwog discovers his own transformation into a frog, he comes to appreciate himself for who he is. The
illustrations and the writing are as playful and perfect today as they were 35 years ago.

Brick by Brick by Guilano Ferri is a new wordless book about animals who take down a wall, brick by brick,
and discover another group of animals across the river. They then use the bricks to build a bridge instead.
An inventive metaphor for the importance of being friendly and welcoming neighbors.

Curious George is 75 years old! Children have always loved his spirit and determination,
two qualities possessed by his creators H.A. and Margret Rey. This clever and resourceful couple escaped
from Paris on bicycles the night before the Nazis marched in. They carried the manuscript for their book on
the back of their bikes, salvaging their art while running for their lives. An incredible act and an incredible way
to bring Curious George into the world.

Sincerely,
Isabel Baker
