PB Planet Spotlight: Itty Bitty

Big PB Planet applause for Itty Bitty by Cece Bell, (Candlewick Press, 2009). It’s an adorably absurd situation when a two-inch dog comes across a bone, and decides it’s big enough to call home. Itty Bitty moves in, but realizes that the spare space doesn’t feel homey yet—he needs some itty-bitty furnishings! But will Itty-Bitty find anything his size in the big department store? The simple, sweet, low-conflict story and the cheerful illustrations will appeal to itty-bitty readers, and parents will chuckle at the puns contained in the “little” title puns on the bookshelf. (Plus, Itty Bitty’s vehicle is just about the cutest mode of transportation ever!) Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today.

Another one I'll have to be on the lookout for. You really seem to like Candlewick :)

Sounds very cute! I'll look for it!

(laughing) Corey, I think Candlewick must've given a bunch of books to my county library recently, because there's been a lot of them in the new books area! But that's great by me--great house, great books, cute logo. (Speaking of, I always thought it would be cool to have a book published by Blue Sky Press, because their heart-with-wings logo would make a cute tattoo!)

Hi, Pam! Glad you'll look for it. Just remember, Itty Bitty is an itty bitty book (maybe 5x7, 8x8, tops). I have to guess on this one since I already returned it to the library, and I'm severely spacial-ly challenged. (I can never pick the right container for leftovers on the first try, and parallel-parking? Forget it!) Good luck, and thanks for posting!
