Flora's Surprise

Debi Gliori. Orchard, $15.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-439-45590-9

The winsome bunny star of Flora's Blanket returns in Flora's Surprise by Debi Gliori. While her older brothers and sisters are busy planting the family garden, Flora plants a brick. ""I'm growing a house,"" she announces. As everyone else's plantings yield glorious results, ""How's your brick, Flora?"" becomes a running sibling joke. But Flora is vindicated when, the following spring, a friendly blackbird turns the planting into a cozy nest.
