Freddie and Gingersnap Find a Cloud to Keep

Vincent X. Kirsch. Disney-Hyperion, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-4231-5976-6

In their second outing, Freddie the dinosaur and Gingersnap the dragon are on the hunt for a cloud; Freddie wants one of his own, but as Gingersnap reminds him, “No one can keep a cloud.” What Freddie thinks is a cloud turns out to be a dirigible piloted by a young aviator and magician, who pepper them with questions (“Is it fun being a dragon?” “Do you like being purple?”), sing a song, and conjure a storm before finding their way home. Freddie and Gingersnap’s world is a trippy, nonsensical one, where just about anything can happen (a puffy cloud waves goodbye to the departing dirigible), and the magical is treated as matter-of-fact. Ages 3–5. Agent: Christa Heschke, McIntosh & Otis. (Jan.)
