The Outsider ★★★★☆
The Outsider - Stephen King

The best and worst of SK: Great characters to invest in, author violating your trust and investment in those characters, awful events fantastically described, wildly uneven pacing, strangely dissatisfying ending. Subtract a star for placing at least part of the events in some bizarre version of Texas where entirely distinct geographic regions are mishmashed together in a way that is completely unrecognizable. Add a star for

bringing back Holly from the Mr Mercedes trilogy.

(spoiler show)

Add another star for an outstanding performance by Will Patton.

Wolfie the Bunny ★★★☆☆
Wolfie the Bunny - Ame Dyckman

Dot’s pretty salty about the new interloper in the family, but in  the end discovers something common to most big sisters: He might be a wolf in bunny clothing, but he’s still YOUR wolf in bunny clothing. Loved Dot’s sass, and her voice was fun to read aloud. Not a huge fan of the illustrations, though.

Horrible Bear ★★☆☆☆
Horrible Bear! - Ame Dyckman,Zachariah OHora

I don’t know if my library copy was missing some pages or if the author is trying to introduce preschoolers to non-linear storytelling, but I found this disjointed and hard to follow. Plus, I didn’t like the blobbly scribbly illustrations.

Boy + Bot ★★★★☆
Boy and Bot - Ame Dyckman,Dan Yaccarino

Boy and Robot find common ground and friendship. Cute story, love the illustrations. I especially liked the juxtaposition of Robot power switch : Boy sleep time and how they tried to take care of each other.

Tea Party Rules ★★★★☆
Tea Party Rules - Ame Dyckman,K.G. Campbell

Cub will put up with almost anything to eat cookies, but he can’t suppress his essential bear nature forever. I’m not sure what the moral is here, or if there is one, but poor little Cub is so relatable, and the illustrations are great.
