Owen adores Easter. Life doesn't get much better than a basket full of jelly beans ("My favorite"), gumdrops ("My favorite"), buttercream eggs ("My favorite"), and a chocolate bunny ("My favorite"). Unless... there's also a little yellow marshmallow chick the same color as our hero's fuzzy blanket. Decked out in his purple plaid Easter finery, this boy mouse spends a giddy day playing with his sugary new pal. And does he succumb to tasty temptation? How dare you even think such a thing! Kevin Henkes, in picture books such as Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Sheila Rae's Peppermint Stick, and our introduction to the blanky-toting mouse, Owen, creates recognizable characters in familiar settings and preschool predicaments. His bright, spring-hued illustrations and gently humorous plots are tremendously appealing for readers young and old. In no time, this cute little board book will have every youngster announcing, "My favorite." (Baby to preschool) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
