A small-town girl on a mission to buy whipping cream for the holiday dessert occasions this visually playful outing. In blocky shapes and muted colors that recall the style of J. Otto Seibold, Milgrim (Cows Can't Fly) chronicles the girl's path from her home ("Thanks for sending me, Mom") to the general store and back again. Along the way, she expresses her gratitude for her "warm boots," a duck who returns the scarf she loses and a quartet of rabbits for their companionship. Despite the hokey premise, the scenery, taking in a family of snowpeople and houses of lavender and sage hues, conjures a postmodern winter wonderland. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
