"Stacking the Shelves"
is was a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It seems the blog is gone though, for the link no longer takes you to it. So, I will just continue to post a "What's New? post whenever I receive new books.
For Review: I had the opportunity to choose from new publisher, Red Comet's debut list recently. The books came in a lovely package:I can't wait.
Cat & Dog: a Tale of Opposites by Tullio Corda. Translated by Taylor Barrett Gaines. 36 p. Red Comet Press, September 7, 2021. 9781636550022.
Publisher synopsis: Cat and Dog are not the same, in fact they are very different and the perfect subjects for a tale of opposites.
From the start of their day to the inevitable tussle, for these two best friends, everything is opposite. Enjoy their adventures as they fight and play, chase and hide, in an escapade that includes some special storytelling in the illustrations of this deceptively simple book. Tullio Corda depicts a relationship that is familiar to us all and provides a clever surprise ending.
Before We Sleep by Giorgio Volpe & Paolo Proietti. Translated by Angus Yuen-Killick. 26 p. Red Comet Press, September 7, 2021. 9781636550046.
Publisher synopsis: Soon, the dormouse must hibernate, and the friends will part. As the time for sleep nears, the fox tries to keep the dormouse awake. Sleep indeed must come, but not before the two friends have shared one last story, knowing they will be together again in the spring.
This gentle friendship story is the perfect allegory for the bedtime ritual. And the reassuring message is clear: “I will be there for you when you wake.”
Each book has a link to activity pages on their web page.
