Roar and More!

Karla Kuskin. Boyds Mills Press, $11.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-1-59078-249-1

Kids can Roar and More in this paper-over-board reissue of Karla Kuskin's charming volume from 1956. Against bright, solid-colored backgrounds, boldly outlined animals pose for readers opposite brief verse: ""Fish is the wish/ Of the cat on the mat./ Or maybe his dream/ Is catnip and cream."" Following each animal/poem pairing, the noise it makes dominates a spread (here, a purr stretches across both pages). .
