Her Majesty, Aunt Essie

Amy Schwartz. Puffin Books, $3.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-14-050570-2

Ruthie is so sure that her Aunt Essie is a queen that she bets on it with her friend Maisie; the winner will get Ruthie's beloved dog Joe. PW reported that ""Schwartz's luridly colored, droll cartoons illustrate a dandy and very different story.'' (38)
