2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 
A playful romp between unlikely companions, the whirling text and escalating rhymes will delight young listeners. Watercolor illustrations in muted tones capture the animals' exuberance and exhausted delight. With skillful wordplay and a spiraling pace, the book begs to be read aloud (but may leave the reader as tired as the two friends). Up to Seven. -Kit Ballenger
