EVIE TO THE RESCUE! by Hermann Moers
by Hermann Moers, illustrated by Gusti, translated by Marianne Martens
Released: Nov. 1, 1997

"Gusti makes wonderful use of light and shadow—especially effective touches are Evie's yellow slicker reflected in a puddle, and the long shadow preceding the lion cub into Evie's room. (Picture book. 5-8)"
Moers (Hugo's Baby Brother, 1992, etc.) comes up with an adventure that seems perfectly in line with what children dream up themselves. Read full book review >
HUGO'S BABY BROTHER by Hermann Moers
Released: April 1, 1992

"Wilko's glowing double spreads, rendered in pastels, are lovely—rich color; evanescent, lightly sketched background details; and the delightful lions, who express subtle human emotion with every whisker, leap, and glance. (Picture book. 4-8)"
Sibling rivalry, lion-style: Hugo is not prepared to be supplanted, but his mother is cheerfully firm and his dad unsympathetic when he decides to ``do something really terrible''—like reaching for a poisonous snake; still, there are lions his own age to play with, and in the end he makes friends with little Sasha and even rescues him from an elephant.
