Shhhh. It's a Secret!

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a total sucker for great picture books. My mom was an elementary school librarian for years, and in return for helping her catalog new books in the summer we got to read them all first! And we did. My little sister is now a middle-school librarian, so clearly she caught the book bug too.
I was thrilled that The Lion & the Mouse, by Jerry Pinkney, just won the Caldecott Award. And I've gone on and on about how much I love Yummy, by Lucy Cousins. It's, well, just totally yummy!

But there's another great picture book that I'm loving right now that has just recently come back in stock (it's been in great demand): It's a Secret, by John Burningham. In this beautifully and whimsically illustrated story, little Marie Elaine (who grows even smaller in the book) learns where her cat, Malcolm, goes at night, when she joins him to attend a cat party
