All Ears All Eyes

by Richard Jackson

illustrated by Katherine Tillotson


Shh…look…listen…to the sounds of the dark say Goodnight!


What sails? What flies? Those…these, Down low, nearby, far off, up high.


Who listens? Who looks? Who hears? Who sees?


An homage to the melodies of nighttime, to each critter that sings, hoots, or glows, All Ears, All Eyes takes us on a moonlit journey where the landscape shimmers with Fantasia-like beauty. Where if you look and listen, you might spy an owl, a deer, a chipmunk—or—what else!—before falling asleep.

Shoe Dog

by Megan McDonald

illustrated by Katherine Tillotson


Shoe Dog like to chew.

And chew

and chew.


Not a boring old bone.

Not a squeaky old toy.

Not a smelly old sock.


Shoe Dog liked to chew...

Well, guess!


And that’s his trouble.


     “Totally ebullient”

                              —Kirkus starred review and Best Book 2014


   “This cool canine creation cavorts through an Escher-like home abstracted into furniture floating amid white space. Simple to relate to and easy to love.”

It’s Picture Day Today

by Megan McDonald

illustrated by Katherine Tillotson


Button is late -

late, late, late.

Missed the bus to school,

on this day of all days.

Everyone else who makes up the class -

Feathers, Strings,

Springs, Rings,

Pom-Poms, Yarns,

and Wheely Things -

they're all inside,

getting themselves together.

Getting ready for the teacher,

the camera,

the wide-angle moment.

But wait...

wait, wait, wait...

Button's not the only one late!
