Milo's Special Words

Charise Mericle Harper, Author Random/Corey $10.99 (26p) ISBN 978-0-375-84613-7

When Milo—a cat in overalls, with two (slightly vampiric) pointed teeth—wants some milk like his sister (she's a little dog), he struggles to find just the right “special word” to get his mother (a bunny) to respond. By turning a wheel, readers can spin the possibilities—“Abracadabra!”; “Floopindoodle!”—into place. When Milo finally speaks the magic word, Mommy moves “quick as a bunny” via a foldout panel (though he has to learn another special word once she brings him his milk). Colorful art, distinctive characters and gentle humor courtesy of the flywheels lend a common lesson some pizzazz. Ages 3–6. (May)
