Perfect Picture Book Friday
Floaty (Henry Holt and Co., 2018) by John Himmelman is a fun book. I missed it when it came out and am glad a friend brought it to my attention. I think kids and adults will appreciate the humor in words and illustrations.
Mr. Raisin only likes sewing. One day a basket is left at his door and inside is a troublesome puppy who floats. The old man can’t quite just let him go and eventually Mr. Raisin becomes fond of the dog he names, Floaty. But what is he to do when one day the leash breaks and Floaty floats away?
