It's Halloween in Emily Jenkins's Dangerous Pumpkins, the second title in the chapter-book series about a Brooklyn fourth grader and his invisible furry pal. Hank Wolowitz hates Halloween. Every year his older sister, Nadia, scares him half to death. But Hank's invisible bandapat, Inkling, loves Halloween. Pumpkins are his favorite food. Hank has serious trouble stopping Inkling from devouring every jack-o'-lantern in their neighborhood, including the ones his sister carves. And that's not his only problem: Will he ever figure out a cool costume? Will he finally get to pick the holiday flavor in his family's ice-cream shop? Will Hank ever get revenge on Nadia?
Three humans and two cats. Five creatures live in our house. Three humans, and two cats. Three short, and two tall. Four grownups, and one child (that's me!). In this book of lighthearted comparisons, simple text and warm pictures work together to depict various scenes in a happy household where each member is distinct but also has something inn common with one or more of the others. The fun comes from sorting out the similarities and the differences.
The thing about Hank's new friend Inkling is, he's invisible. No, not imaginary. Inkling is an invisible bandapat, a creature native only to the Peruvian Woods of Mystery. (Or maybe it is the Ukrainian glaciers. Inkling hardly ever gets his stories straight.) Now Inkling has found his way to Brooklyn and into Hank's laundry basket on his quest for squash-bandapats' favorite food. But Hank has bigger problems than helping Inkling fend off maniac doggies and search for yummy pumpkins: Bruno Gillicut is a lunch-stealing dirtbug caveperson and he's got to be stopped. And who better to help stand up to a bully than an invisible friend?
The adventures of Brooklyn boy Hank Wolowitz and his invisible--but not imaginary--friend continue with The Whoopie Pie War, the third book in the Invisible Inkling series by Emily Jenkins. A truck selling ice-cream whoopie pies sets up right in front of the ice-cream shop belonging to Hanks family, and its taking away all the shops business. His dad is going crazy. His mom is furious. Hank and Inkling, his invisible bandapat, arent going to take it. The Whoopie Pie War is on Theyll do whatever it takes to beat the whoopie pie truck--unicorn costumes, extreme kindness, an army of supervillains. The illustrated chapter books mix of silliness, fantasy, strong sense of place, and a realistic family make it a great pick for middle-grade readers.
A lemonade stand in winter? Yes, that's exactly what Pauline and John-John intend to have, selling lemonade and limeade--and also lemon-limeade. With a catchy refrain (Lemon lemon LIME, Lemon LIMEADE! Lemon lemon LIME, Lemon LEMONADE!), plus simple math concepts throughout, here is a read-aloud that's great for storytime and classroom use, and is sure to be a hit among the legions of Jenkins and Karas fans.

They all belong to the Little Girl who lives on the high bed with the fluffy pillows. A very nice person to belong to. But outside of the Little Girl's room things can be confusing.

And where in the house can they find the Little Girl a birthday present that she will love the most? Together is best for these three best friends.

With all the appeal of a classic, here are six linked stories form Emily Jenkins, and illustrated by Caldecott winning Paul O. Zelinsky that showcase the unforgettable adventures--and misadventures-- of three extraordinary friends.
From the first orange glow on the water in the pond, to the last humans and animals running home from an evening rain shower, here is a day-in-the-life of a city park, and the playground within it. A rhythmic text and sweet, accessible images will immerse parents, toddlers, and young children in the summer season and the community within a park. Seasoned picture book readers may notice Emily Jenkins's classic inspirations for this book: Alvin Tresselt's Caldecott Medal-winning White Snow, Bright Snow, illustrated by Roger Duvoisin, and Charlotte Zolotow's The Park Book, illustrated by H. A. Rey.
A preschooler marks the progress of her day, not by the clock but by what happens after lunch, after nap, after swimming, after the library--and after Daddy comes home. She doesn't map her neighborhood by street signs, either. Her morning walk to see dogs in the park takes her past the cat outside the deli, past her friend Errolyn's building and the daycare where she used to go when she was little, and down the block to the bagel store. The sounds, tastes, smells, and sights of a multiethnic Brooklyn neighborhood, as seen through a child's eyes and captured by Emily Jenkins with enchanting pictures by debut illustrator Lauren Castillo, will encourage children to make their own sensory maps and list the events in their daily schedules.
