Around the World with Mouk Marc Boutavant . Chronicle , $17.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8118-6926-3

In this French import, Mouk is a busy bear with a large head and tiny body, whose world feels like a Richard Scarry/manga mashup. He joins his animal friends at a chic Parisian restaurant just before leaving on a world tour (“So basically, you are dumping us,” one catlike friend comments), visiting places like Finland, the Sahara, Japan, and New York. Every page is an explosion of activity, as assorted animals converse in speech balloons and mini-dramas unfold. For extra eye candy, the book comes with a spread of reusable stickers that can be placed onto the smooth, shiny pages. Dynamic and lots of fun. All ages. (Nov.)
