We Share Everything!

It's the first day of kindergarten and Amanda and Jeremiah have a problem. They both want to read the same books. They want to paint with the same paints. And they refuse to share. The teacher tells them, "Look. This is kindergarten. In kindergarten we share. We share everything."  Everything? Amanda and Jeremiah decide to take their teacher at her word. But what can they share? They begin by switching their shoes, and end up wearing each other's outfits! Now Jeremiah is wearing Amanda's pink shoes, pants and shirt and Amanda is wearing Jeremiah's clothes. Together they show their teacher that sharing really can be fun!

Moose
Munsch and Martchenko turn their creative attention on a moose -- with hilarious results! Luke gets up early one Saturday morning and finds a moose in the backyard. He wakes up his dad, and then his mom, and each declares that "moose never come on the farm" -- only to be surprised by the moose itself! Mom tries to shoo it away with a broom but the moose eats it. Dad tries to scare it away with a hose but the moose takes a nice bath. Luke feeds the moose carrots and decides to keep it in his treehouse, until his sister comes along, with a surprising solution to this unusual problem! Moose! was inspired by a young boy from Cape Breton Island. About the Author Robert Munsch is Canada's bestselling author of more than fifty picture books for young readers. His heartwarming and hilarious stories are beloved by children, parents, teachers and booksellers alike, and he was recently inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame. He lives in Guelph, Ontario. Michael Martchenko's illustrations are as instantly identifiable and lovable as Robert Munsch's stories. His wild and colourful pictures add depth and even more hilarity to these picture book tales. He received the CBA Children's Illustrator of the Year Libris Award in 2006. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Too Much Stuff!
How can a few extra toys caus so much extra trouble?

Temina is excited about taking a trip on an airplane, and super-excited to include ALL of her toys and dolls on the trip as well.

Until mom says: "You can bring just ONE doll."

Impossible! How is she going to pick just ONE?

She hatches a top secret plan and sneaks more than one toy into the airport and onto the plane. While everyone around her gawks, Temina proudly displays her beloved companions.

Word spreads quickly to other children on the plane, who feel lonely without their own dolls. Temina is happy to lend out her treasures. The flight becomes a happy memory for Temina and her family, and even more so months later when her generosity is rewarded in the most surprising way!

Like Temina's dolls bursting out of her backpack, this new story by Robert Munsch is bursting with humour and surprises at every turn, beautifully enhanced by the delightful artwork of Michael Martchenko!
