A favorite as a child and now again as a parent. Grover was always my favorite character on Sesame Street. I remember when I first found this book and read it. I loved it. Now I get to read it to my own kids and let them fall in love with Grover just like I did. (It works best if read with Grover's voice.)
Memories One of the best memories I have is my mom reading this to me when I was a 4 or 5... Acting like it was getting harder and harder to turn the page as Grover tried to stop us from getting to the end of the book.
Kaline Klattermaster LOVES his mom. ADORES his mom. But his mom can be, well, a bit forgetful sometimes. A bit lax. A bit...CRAZY. For instance, she's a bit crazy when she leaves him in the tub for THREE HOURS. Or gives him a chicken leg for breakfast...or forgets that he needs to go to school. AND he's not completely sure his mother understands how time works.
She's been even a bit MORE CRAZY since his dad left. So it's a very good thing that the folks in Kaline's tree house are not so crazy. They understand him. They don't mind that he sometimes HAS to play his pretend bugle, and, of course, they are FULL of good advice on how to handle bullies.
His mom hints that the tree house is imaginary. Kaline is UNCONVINCED.
The New York Times bestselling author of A Girl Named Zippy is delighted to introduce Kaline Klattermaster, a little boy who understands the importance of a few good friends -- make-believe OR otherwise.
When Willy wakes up there is trouble. Where is Bobo? Willy needs Bobo. But Earl the cat likes Bobo, too. A favorite toy is hard to share…especially when it’s a sock monkey. Because sharing is caring. Sharing is great. But you know what’s best (according to Earl the cat)? Not sharing at all! With sparse text and a modern-nostalgic vibe, this retro-fun book tells it like it is when it comes to sharing a favorite toy. Oh, Earl! Leave Bobo alone.
