Bicycling to the Moon - Timo Parvela

Staff Pick

Purdy and Barker are a cat and a dog who live together in a house atop a hill. Purdy is a lazy feline with an outsized imagination that has him dreaming of Bicycling to the Moon (Gecko, $16.99); Barker is a down-to-earth dog and finds great pleasure in farm work and fishing. Timo Parvela, courtesy of Ruth Urbom’s translation, shows that different personalities can make the best of friends and housemates. Each chapter is a self-contained story, delightfully illustrated by Virpi Talvitie, and together they paint a complete portrait of a beautiful friendship. Ages 7-10.
