"The Party"

David McPhail

This book is about a boy, his toy animals and his dad. The boy is planning a party with his toys, but his dad falls asleep. The boy decides to party anyway. So he and his toy animals jump on the sleeping dad. They tickle him. They take him to the kitchen on a toy elephant and feed him sandwiches. They take him back upstairs. It is not easy.

I like this book because it is funny and has great pictures.

La Fontaine

This is a collection of stories about talking animals. My favorite one is about a fox and a stork who play tricks on each other. The fox invites the stork for dinner. The stork can't eat out of the shallow dish, but the fox can. Then the stork invites the fox for dinner and brings out two tall jars with narrow necks. Then the fox cannot eat. If you like what I wrote, then you should get "Fables."
