Hot Hot Hot

Neal Layton, Author Candlewick Press (MA) $15.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-7636-2148-3

Layton's prehistoric pair from Oscar and Arabella returns in Hot Hot Hot, as the long Ice Age winter gives way to a blisteringly unpleasant summer, when insects and rising temperatures plague them. A pair of scissors ultimately saves the overheated duo, as they shear themselves and their other hirsute pals, taking to the beach to play volleyball and lounge in the sun.
