“Every guinea pig in Dandeville loved dandelion leaves,” including this story's hero, Nibbles. When leaves run scarce, Nibbles finds one last dandelion growing outside his bedroom window and decides to protect it. After it's grown, he blows the seeds and plants begin to sprout, resulting in “the happy sound of munchingonce more.” Middleton's free-spirited mixed-media illustrations—Nibbles has dimensional whiskers and wears green, floral-print shorts; a “chewy” cabbage appears in photo-collage—keep this allegory about consumption lighthearted. Ages 4–8. (Apr.)
