A young boy snuggles up with a story about mythical creatures while enjoying a slice of crumb cake and a glass of milk. But he had better be careful! The Unicorn on page one will get irritated by any crumbs dropped on her page. The Dragon on the next page may lose his fire if the boy is careless and splashes any milk about. But our boy loves this book. …And a Book is filled with nervous Unicorns, righteously indigent Golems, befuddled Leprechauns, aquaphobic Mermaids, as well as other colorful creatures of mythology. As the story progresses, some form of neglect seems to befall each page--a sloppy spill, or a reckless rip, or an unwarranted crayon doodle--and the illustrated creature who lives on that page reacts, unless...
…And a Book can be a quick, lyrical read. However, the rich, layered illustrations, charming protagonist and dynamic personalities of the book’s inhabitants will draw the child into exploring this world of mythology over and again.

It's Just a Bunnypalooza!
Copyright ©2019 by Brenda Faatz & Peter Trimarco
Pub Date 3.12.19
Picture Book - ages 3-8
It’s Just a Bunnypalooza for our red-headed protagonist Lizzy. Ever rambunctious and creative, Lizzy is learning new dance moves from her furry bunny friends just in time for the school talent show. When she tells her classmates that she’s learning hip-hoppity moves from bunnies, Lizzy becomes embarrassed and self-conscious as the children giggle at her over-active imagination. From there, Lizzy is decidedly in complete denial that animals communicate with her. She becomes an avid "non-believer.” Naturally, the bunnies organize an intervention. Not only will these furry little creatures not allow Lizzy to attempt ‘hip-hop’ without them, they do not want to lose their friend. Word travels fast and before long, where once there were two bunnies there are now three … and soon four and then dozens more. All the while, Lizzy remains steadfast in her denial right up until the “Rabbit-a-Raucous Recital.”
