Look What I've Got!

Anthony Browne, Author Random House Books for Young Readers $11.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-394-89860-5
Jeremy has it all, or so it seems, while Sam does not have a new bike, a new football or money for a whole bag of sweets. Jeremy keeps showing off and bragging about his good fortune, but Sam is seemingly quiet and content. And when Jeremy's many valuables are cause for trouble, Sam is always there to help. Browne creates, in porcupine-haired Sam, a genuine hero with unwavering good character and a sound, imaginative mind; he is a pointed contrast to Jeremy, that very familiar type who finds self-worth in material acquisition. As usual, the illustrator includes amusing visual puns and jokes in his pictures, for those who have eyes to see. Ages 3-8. (April)
