Jasper and Ollie by Alex WillanBest friends Jasper and Ollie decide to go to the pool. On your mark, get set . . . WAIT! As Jasper races ahead--crashing into the mailman, speeding past the ice cream truck--Ollie takes his sweet time, pausing to admire a butterfly, to smell a daisy, and to help the mailman pick up his letters. With a clever design that shows Jasper's hectic morning compared with Ollie's casual stroll, this highly visual story allows young readers to easily recognize the differences between the two pals, as Jasper's increasingly frenzied search for his friend contrasts with Ollie's blissful walk toward the pool. It's a smartly paced, hugely funny celebration of our differences. Kids AND grown-ups will giggle as they decide if they're more of a "Jasper" or an "Ollie." It's also a great way to share the concept of "taking time to smell the roses"--a perfect lesson in our overly scheduled world.

The Trouble with Time Travel by Stephen W. Martin; Cornelia Li (Illustrator)In the time machine--surprisingly easy to construct--Max and Boomer bump around to the past and the future, tangle the string of time, and crash into the ancestral houseboat, promptly sinking it. And in the past, the vase remains intact. Disheartened, Max and Boomer return to the moment just before their adventure began, to warn themselves NOT to build a time machine. In spite of the warning, Max tosses a Frisbee for Boomer, directly in the direction of the vase, and their wild adventure begins again, and again, and again... Joyful and uproarious, this is a one-of-a-kind circular tale that plays on the perils of time travel.
