Who's My Cupcake?

Elissa Haden Guest, illus. by Marina Fedotova. Little Simon, $6.99 (16p) ISBN 978-1-4424-2051-9
Cherubs in diapers hover on gossamer wings in a sugary, wispy world, alongside cozy rhymes that celebrate food-themed nicknames for children. "Who's my snow pea,/ my pudding,/ my funny gumdrop?/ Who's my saltwater taffy,/ my lollipop?" reads the verse as one cherub shows off two freshly shucked green peas, then waters lollipop flowers with a shower of pink hearts. The final spread answers all the "who" questions: "Who do I love,/ my wee honeydew?/ The answer, of course, is/ you, you, you!" Youngest readers, for whom story time is all about connecting with a parent, will gobble up the cuddly message. Ages 1–4. (July)
