Too Princessy!

Jean Reidy, illus. by Geneviève Leloup. Bloomsbury, $12.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-59990-722-2
If there’s one thing boredom is good for, it’s coming up with creative adjectives that end in “Y.” In their third collaboration, Reidy and Leloup introduce a heroine who can’t find an activity that suits her mood. In bright, busy digital spreads, she unpacks toys from a box, but discovers that a puzzle is “too piecey,” a piano is “too plinky,” and riding in a red wagon is “too zoomy.” This high-energy outing sends a clear message: sometimes the simplest toy is the best one. Ages 3–5. Agent: Erin Murphy, Erin Murphy Literary Agency. Illustrator’s agent: Michèle Manasse, New Work Illustration. (Jan.)
