Ella and Penguin Stick Together by Megan Maynor, illustrated by Rosaline Bonnet

This was a simple, sweet book that I fell in love with. These are often midlist titles that make up the bulk of our collections - they don't win awards and may not be outstanding or even memorable, but they create warm memories of reading together and may just be a childhood favorite for a little one.

Ella has stickers and Penguin is thrilled. But they're not ordinary stickers - they're glow-in-the-dark stickers! There's just one problem; they have to go in the dark closet to see them glow! With Ella's help, will Penguin be brave enough to venture into the dark closet and see the stickers glow?

The simple, comic illustrations are delightful and though the story doesn't have any wild excitement or uproarious humor, there's a gentle, sweet feeling to it that will reassure listeners while making them giggle along with Penguin's worries.

Verdict: Perfect for a storytime on the dark or stars, be prepared to break out the glow-in-the-dark stickers to go along with this story!
