by Zachariah Ohora
Every Saturday, Oskar and a bear named Theodore head to the library with dad (and a donut breakfast) to get some quiet reading.
This Saturday, their reading is interrupted by a five-headed monster who thinks the library is his own personal buffet! Just before they eat the duo, Theodore entices them with donuts. And Ms. Watson the librarian steps in with an announcement that story time will begin.
“Please sit criss-cross applesauce!”
The monsters discover how good both donuts and story time can be and apologize for making a mess of the library.
Why I like it
I enjoy the randomness of this book and the love that all the characters have for the library. George loves the monster aspect. I also enjoy the hipster dad depiction. I can’t help but wonder if Ohora drew himself.
Hope you enjoy these picks! And as always,
