A Place for Ben

Jeanne Titherington, Author Greenwillow Books $16 (0p) ISBN 978-0-688-06493-8
An example of story and pictures as a seamless entity, Titherington's third book is simple, lovely and touching without a bit of sentimentality. Ben has had it with little brother Ezra. The search for a place of his own takes Ben to a cozy corner in the garage where he takes his friends and snacks. But the pleasure quickly fades. There is no one to share it with, until Ezra shows up and Ben realizes he has been underestimating the toddler's talents as a playmate. Titherington's paintings reflect, in quiet colors, the story of a problem satisfactorily solved. The pictures are arresting; readers will long remember Ben's welcoming grin when Ezra crawls up, looking for a friend. Ages 4-8. (April)
