Papa's Mechanical Fish
Clink! Clankety-bang! Thump-whirr! That's the sound of Papa at work. Although he is an inventor, he has never made anything that works perfectly, and that's because he hasn't yet found a truly fantastic idea. But when he takes his family fishing on Lake Michigan, his daughter Virena asks, "Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a fish?"—and Papa is off to his workshop. With a lot of persistence and a little bit of help, Papa—who is based on the real-life inventor Lodner Phillips—creates a submarine that can take his family for a trip to the bottom of Lake Michigan.
Surf’s up for a bunch of mischievous bunnies and one frazzled farmer in this beach-time read-aloud adventure. Mr. McGreely had bunny problems. He had bunnies in his garden. Bunnies in his shed. Bunnies in his cupboard. Bunnies in his…BED! Mr. McGreely has had it with irksome rabbits, so he dons his swimsuit and a pair of goggles and gets ready for some time away at the beach. Little does he know, the bunnies have stowed away in his backseat! He also hadn’t known that the rascally rabbits have mad surfing and kite flying skills. His annoyance is at sunstroke level…until he sees a sign for a sandcastle-making contest, and realizes that teaming up with the pesky pufftails might just have some benefits. From the creators of Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! and Tippy-Tippy-Tippy, Hide!, this read-aloud adventure comes complete with hilarious illustrations, bouncy language, and, of course, the cutest bunnies around.
