Except that their win only leads to trouble. Neil, Sam, and Biggs are captured by the real Captain Jolly, who needs their video-game skills so she can destroy the world.

Bear and Bunny

Daniel Pinkwater

The bear and the bunny are friends who like to wander in the woods, look for things to eat, sing songs, and talk things over. One day, the bunny asks the bear, "Why do we not have some kind of pet?" Well, the bear is not sure what a pet is. So the bunny explains that it's an animal that you take care of and feed, and one that loves you. But a pine cone is not the right pet for a bear and a bunny. And a caterpillar is nice, but it may not be very much fun. After a much-needed nap in the forest, will these two find their perfect pet? Ages 2 to 5.

Groundhog's Day Off

Robb Pearlman

Every year, people ask Groundhog the same, boring old question. Is spring around the corner, or are we doomed to more winter? They only care about his shadow, and he's had enough! Groundhog packs his bags and sets out for a much-needed vacation. Now the town is holding auditions to find someone to fill his spot. None of the animals seem right for the job, though. Not Elephant, not Ostrich, and most certainly not Puppy. Is it too late to woo Groundhog back? Ages 3 to 6.
