JUNE 2019 PICTURE BOOK BOX

  • The Adventures of Egg Box Dragon A little girl named Emma creates a dragon from an egg carton. The local gardener declares that the dragon has magic. He says, “Put him to sleep under the moon and watch what happens.” Sure enough, the next day the dragon comes to life and has the ability to find lost things. He’s perfectly friendly but rather mischievous. Soon the Queen hears about the magic dragon and sends a royal car to bring the dragon and Emma to the palace. The Queen requires the dragon to find a diamond that has been lost from her crown. This is a charming and quirky story by British author Richard Adams, who passed away in 2016. Although he wrote many books, he was best known for the award-winning best-seller Watership Down. Alex T. Smith’s illustrations are perfectly paired.
  • Leyla by Galia Bernstein. Marmalade readers may remember Galia’s first book I Am a Cat, which we featured in our April 2018 Picture Book box. Equally adorable, this is the story of Leyla the baboon who comes from a very large family. They all want to hug, kiss and groom her, even though she isn’t dirty. The attention just gets to be too much and she runs away. She runs until she can’t see or smell them anymore. She almost runs right into... EEEEEP a lizard!! The very laid-back lizard teaches Leyla how to do, well…nothing.  She sits quietly with her eyes closed, feeling the sun on her skin and listening to the rustling of the wind, thinking of nothing at all. Sometime later, Leyla is ready to return to her family but not before she asks the lizard if she can come back again for a visit. Kids who often feel overwhelmed by their surroundings will love Leyla and the lizard’s trick for de-stressing! Galia was born in Israel and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
