The Man Who Loved Libraries

Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen’s The Wolf, The Duck, and the Mouse (Candlewick Press) feels like an old-fashioned fable updated with the duo’s trademark sly humour, in which the smaller of the animals are eaten by the largest, only to discover their gluttonous host keeps them in pretty good kip. • Trust delightfully quirky author Kyo Maclear and delightfully quirky illustrator Esmé Shapiro to add a delightfully quirky angle to the proceedings in odd-couple friendship tale Yak and Dove (Tundra). • The inner lives of stuffed animals are revealed in Leanne Shapton’s Toys Talking (Drawn & Quarterly), in which the artist, author, and publisher employs the same minimalist line-drawing style and spare text she showcased in her 2006 title Was She Pretty? to decidedly different effect. • Leap! (Kids Can) is JonArno Lawson’s buoyant, rhyming circular story poem about a group of frolicking wildlife, featuring illustrations by Joseé Bisaillon.
