Books in Brief: Wilfred
The name of the book being recommended: Wilfred by Ryan Higgins
Please give us five reasons why this book is awesome:
1. It features a vividly-imagined world where a hairy monster searching for a friend encounters a town of bald people.
2. The illustrations are excellent. Expressive characters and intricate textures.
3. It tells a Lorax-type tale about the perils of over-exploitation of our environment.
4. Except in this case it's the over-harvesting of monster hair for the purpose of making toupees.
5. There are many birch trees depicted. Logically, since the author is from Maine.
How can I find this book in the library? It can be found in the Children's Department, in picture book fiction, under the call number jE HIG.
