Dozens of CousinsBe on the lookout this summer for a book with a rhyming title! Dozens of Cousins by Shutta Crum is illustrated by David Catrow (who, I must say is now an OtLS favorite). Catrow illustrated Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon, as well as last week’s Picture Book of the Week – Our Tree Named Steve. I haven’t read or viewed all 70+ of his illustrated books, but so far he’s batting 1.000 (spring means baseball). Crum is a former librarian, so let’s give her some applause (or do we boo, since she’s no longer a librarian?).

While I can’t confirm whether Dozens of Cousins is a rhyming tale, it looks like a wild romp through a family reunion, and I look forward to reading it with my dozens of children…
