Hello World!

Paul Beavis. Gecko Press USA (Lerner, dist.), $17.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-9272-7198-8
In this sequel to Mrs. Mo’s Monster (2014), the fuzzy blue monster from that book—one part toddler, one part gremlin—sets out to see the world since his elderly caretakers are too busy to do anything fun. With a backpack overstuffed with sporting equipment, toys, cookware, and more, the monster tromps off into the mountains before getting lost. Luckily, Mrs. Mo isn’t far behind, helping him out (not to mention retrieving everything he has dropped along the way). The story concludes abruptly, but a glorious scene in which the two gaze out over a patchwork landscape that glows under the light of the setting sun is worth the price of admission. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)
