A bevy of favorite picture books are now available in a board book edition. Maisy creator Lucy Cousins's childlike figures in thick black outline set against bold fields of color distinguish Za-Za's Baby Brother. A new baby in the family means that Mom and Dad have less time for young Za-Za the zebra in a simple story that delivers a useful message to preschoolers.
