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.
Illustration: Something to Do by David Lucas
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
A tribute to imagination, and wacky chapeaux. Review to come.

I can't wait to see your review of If not for the Cat and Millie's Marvellous Hat - I've reviewed them both and really loved them.
