My Blankie

Alice Beauvisage. Simply Read (Ingram, dist.), $6.95 (12p) ISBN 978-1-927018-08-8
French author/illustrator Beauvisage, in her first children’s book, celebrates the many things a blanket can do. Her young hero has a flair for the adventurous (“With my blankie, I build tents and igloos... I become a pirate... or the King of Rollerblading”), but he’s also happy to use his polka-dotted blanket as a tea party tablecloth (and napkin) and to cuddle with it, of course. The warm golds and reds of the boy’s blanket set a comforting tone in themselves, and the playful presence of a trio of stuffed animals highlights the rich sense of imagination that drives the story. Up to age 3. (Aug.)
