Picture books for everyone

Weasels by Elys Dolan

I don't know about you, but it has never occurred to me to wonder what weasels do with their time. Yet, that is the concept of this book. Weasels plotting world domination. THe plot is fairly simple: the machine they built to take over the world has broken and they are trying to figure out how to fix it. Each page is packed with action. There are dozens of weasels carrying on conversations, carrying around huge drills, all kinds of things to discover. It's kind of like leafing through a Where's Waldo book and finding all of the little jokes inside. This makes it perhaps not the best pick for preschoolers but a fun read for elementary school kids.
