JOE ON THE GO
Peggy Perry Anderson
(HMH Books for Young Readers, Aug. 7, 2012)
It’s the Frog family reunion, and all of Joe’s relatives have gathered together. Everybody’s having fun—everyone except for Joe. With so many Frogs around, you’d think that surely somebody would play with Joe, but everyone says he’s too big, too small, too fast, or too slow. No matter where poor Joe turns, all he hears is “no” . . . until a very special guest arrives—someone with an appreciation for Joe and his boundless energy, someone who even has her own set of wheels.Bright, appealing illustrations feature Joe’s mishaps with all kinds of things that go: tricycles, skateboards, roller skates, and more.
