Ballet Cat: The Totally Secret Secret

Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony are trying to decide what to play today. Nothing that Sparkles suggests–making crafts, playing checkers, and selling lemonade–goes well with the leaping, spinning, and twirling that Ballet Cat likes to do. When Sparkles’s leaps, spins, and twirls seem halfhearted, Ballet Cat asks him what’s wrong. Sparkles doesn’t want to say. He has a secret that Ballet Cat won’t want to hear. What Sparkles doesn’t know is that Ballet Cat has a secret of her own, a totally secret secret. Once their secrets are shared, will their friendship end, or be stronger than ever?

Dinosaur vs. School

Dinosaur is starting preschool today.  ROAR!  There are new friends to meet, dress-up outfits to wear, glitter and googly eyes to paste, musical instruments to play, and snacks to eat.  What’s not to like? But then, oh, no!  It’s Dinosaur vs. Clean-up Time!  Fortunately, when friends work together, EVERYONE WINS!  With all the bright colors, bold lines, and toddler-like exuberance that have made the previous Dinosaur vs. books irresistible, DINOSAUR VS. SCHOOL will both amuse and reassure anyone going off to school for the first time.

Dinosaur vs. Bedtime

Roaaaar! Roaar! Nothing can stop me! Nothing can stop little dinosaur-not talking grownups, spaghetti, or even bath time.

But what happens when he faces the biggest challenge of all…bedtime?

With spare text and irresistible dinosaur roaaars, little dinosaurs will be begging for this book to be read again and again.

But how will his roaring go over at the library? Has Dinosaur finally met his match in Storytime?

By combining everyone’s favorite feisty red dinosaur with a variety of animals and a celebration of reading, author-illustrator-designer Bob Shea has created another irresistable romp for toddlers and parents to enjoy together.

Dinosaur vs. the Potty

Dinosaur doesn’t need to use the potty. Even when he’s making lemonade, running through the sprinkler, having a three-juice-box lunch, and splashing in rain puddles. See? He’s doing his victory dance.

Wait . . . that’s not a victory dance, that looks like a POTTY DANCE!

Run, Dinosaur, run! Dinosaur vs. the Potty, with humor that both toddlers and parents will enjoy, is a great new way to toilet train. Dinosaur’s stubborn resistance–and Potty’s ultimate victory–will evoke roars of laughter.

Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great

Goat made marshmallow squares that almost came out right, but Unicorn made it rain cupcakes! Unicorn is such a show-off, how can Goat compete?

When Goat and Unicorn share a piece of pizza, Goat learns that being a unicorn might not be all it’s cracked up to be. And when Unicorn shows his admiration for Goat, it looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
