Writing: If Not for the Cat by Jack Prelutsky, illustrated by Ted Rand
Nature and animal haiku doesn't exactly scream Jack Prelutsky to me, but wow can he do it.

Okay, it does have a haunting similarity to Harold and the Purple Crayon. But I loved it anyway. Review to come.
Overall: Millie's Marvellous Hat by Satoshi Kitamura
