  1. My reactions:

    Liked the sound of Utterly Otterly Night but didn't especially like the illustrations.

    I really really liked Balloons Over Broadway.

    I also really liked Eight Class Pets Plus One Squirrel and Pie.

    Strega Nona's Gift and The Case of the Lost Boy were both fine, but I didn't love them.

    Still need to do some more reading.
