Red Ted and the Lost Things by Michael Rosen, illustrated by Joel Stewart
This graphic novel picture book is presented in panels and dialogue, although most panels are wordless. It's best suited for one-on-one reading, but I'm going to read it in storytime anyways, because I want to sing the cat's little song! The panels are in soft, washed-out colors, while the characters stand out brightly, which I think will make it easier for storytime listeners to follow the action.
Verdict: Recommended. A sweet story with intriguing illustrations
