CAPTAIN CAT by Inga Moore
Released: Oct. 8, 2013

"Though it's on the long side, Moore's tale combines traditional themes and spritely illustrations to create a satisfying, offbeat adventure. (Picture book. 4-7)"
This quirky tale has something for everyone: an adventurous sea captain, a mysterious island, mounds of treasure, a spunky princess, handsome sailors, charming cats (who are also ruthless hunters), and a clever, if not entirely intentional, comeuppance for a band of greedy merchants.

OH, LITTLE JACK by Inga Moore
ANIMALS
Released: May 1, 1992

"What makes this special is the lovingly detailed setting depicted in the colored pencil illustrations, which beautifully capture the autumnal woodland, the endearing rabbits, and their cozy relationships. These soft, warm drawings are precious, in the best sense. (Picture book. 2-4)

"

A simple, predictable story about a little rabbit who's too small to help his parents or join the play of his older siblings; fortunately, the tricycle Granpa has fixed for him is just the right size, as is Granpa's lap when they share a book later that evening. Read full book review >

SIX-DINNER SID by Inga Moore
ANIMALS
Released: May 23, 1991

"
