The Imaginary Garden - Andrew Larsen and Irene Luxbacher

When Poppa moves to an apartment, Theo misses his old garden, so they plant The Imaginary Garden (Kids Can Press, $16.95) on his balcony, using paints and a large canvas. Together, grandfather and granddaughter “plant” the first flowers of spring, and they even add a hungry robin. When Poppa goes away on holiday, Theo tends the garden, adding beautiful new flowers and colors, and a special surprise for Poppa. Irene Luxbacher’s gorgeous illustrations accompany Andrew Larsen’s heartwarming story. Ages 4-8.

Duck! Rabbit! - Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s clever illustration is a visual puzzle. The picture could be a duck with a white bill or a rabbit with long ears folded straight back. Each scene can be interpreted as Duck! Rabbit! (Chronicle, $16.99) It all depends on how you look at it. Ages 4-8.

The Three Robbers - Tomi Ungerer

A hearty welcome is due to the reissue of Tomi Ungerer’s brilliant 1963 picture book, The Three Robbers (Phaidon, $16.95). The three fierce robbers have a neat operation: the first has a blunderbuss, the second has a pepper-blower, and the third has a huge red axe. When they stop carriages, the first throws pepper into the horses’ eyes, the third chops the wheels with his axe, and the second threatens the passengers with his blunderbuss and robs them of their valuables. On the night when the only valuable is a little orphan named Tiffany, the robbers have more than met their match! Ages 4-7.
