A host of reissued titles are back to greet a new generation of readers. Laura Numeroff's Beatrice Doesn't Want To (1981) returns with new illustrations by Lynn Munsinger. In this tale, Henry must take his obstinate sister to the library as he works on a report. But during a storytelling session, the librarian manages to change Beatrice's mind about libraries and books, if not her overall disposition, made all the more credible by Munsinger's emotive artwork. .
