24- Poof by John O'Brien

Amber loved this book about deuling husband and wife wizards.

Description:

Here is a picture book that could only come from the wacky imagination of John O'Brien. Imagine a wizard and his wife who love to spend the day lounging in their easy chairs. These two will do anything to avoid ordinary household chores. To change the baby's diaper, the wizard waves his wand and--POOF!--he unleashes a chain of events that leads to laughter on every page.

25- Baby Duck's New Friend by Devin Asch

This was a cute story about a baby duck who doesn't know that his new friend is a rubber duck.

Description:

Baby Duck's mama warns him not to swim past the old stone bridge unless he's with a duck who can fly. Luckily, Baby Duck meets what appears to be the perfect new friend--it can swim and fly, and it isn't afraid of anything. The two of them make an incredible journey to the sea. And when Baby Duck has to find his own way home, he discovers something amazing about himself.

30- Rover by Michael Rosen

Amber liked the twist that the dog narrates the story and thinks he's in charge of his humans!

Descriptions:

In this topsy-turvy picture book, the narrator is a good-natured garrulous dog who has a pet human being - small girl variety - named Rover. ("She has very weak claws. Her coat only covers her head.") Seeing the world through canine eyes both tickles the funnybone and broadens the listener's perspective. The shaggy dog's story even has suspense: he loses his pet human being at the beach.

#39 - Hounded by Sadie Hart

This is the first book in Hart's Shifter Town Enforcement series.  It's about Hounds (Rodesian Ridgebacks, Wolfhounds, Bloodhounds) who are law enforcement for other shifters like lions.  It's interesting to have a book about dogs - LOL!  But it was a great story and I enjoyed it!  Below is Amazon's description.

Lion-shifters Kanon Reyes and Tegan Sharpe aren’t sure what Kanon’s done to earn himself a frame-up for murder, but they’re determined to keep him from a silver bullet and a shallow grave. To do that, though, they’ll have to rely on the sexy Hound sent to arrest him.

As a Hound for Shifter Town Enforcement, Lennox Donnelly is one of the best. But when one of her arrest warrants turns out to be for an innocent man, she’s determined to get to the truth. What she finds are dead witnesses and an untraceable magick–with a killer far more powerful than her.

Now, to survive, Lennox will have to learn to rely on more than just herself if she’s to make it back to the men she’s come to love.
