We Belong Together

Joyce Wan. Scholastic/Cartwheel, $6.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-545-30740-6

This companion to the You Are My Cupcake features more cutely personified objects and edibles, embossed to create a bumpy tactile effect. "We belong together like smitten little mittens," writes Wan, as two rosy-cheeked mittens appear to wave at one another. Other endearing similes include "Like a pencil is drawn to paper," and "Like hot chocolate and marshmallows." Manga-like characterizations and a chunky, hip design deliver the cuddly sentiment with panache. Up to age 3. (Sept.)
