As he did in Monday the Bullfrog, Van Fleet combines storytelling with a stuffed toy, this time a hungry octopus who introduces the months. Covered in velvety orange fabric, October has a mouth that opens wide to reveal the pages of the book. Tails and appendages of the sea creatures October “catches” each month stick out the sides of the pages: “February freezes with snow, sleet, and hail,/ as October catches something with pebbly green scales.” The green arm affixed to the next page offers a clue about the animal in question, in this case a sea turtle. A clever (and cuddly) design helps make this an engaging introduction to the months of the year. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 3–5. (Aug.)

Matthew Van Fleet has done it again! I purchased this book for my 2 year old granddaughter but her 4 1/2 year old brother loved it as well. It is a fast-moving read and keeps the kids entertained. There is a cute twist at the end that makes everyone smile!
