King desperately wants some treats in King & Kayla and the Case of the Missing Dog Treats (Peachtree, $14.95), but they aren’t for him!

Elderly Eugenia Lincoln has always bossed around her younger sister, still known only as Baby. When Baby ends a lifelong tradition of obedience and declares she is taking “a necessary journey” against Eugenia’s wishes, the latter can only demand, Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln? (Candlewick, $14.99). On board a train, Baby meets three strangers who help her see that the world is full of joy and possibility. Despite this fulfilling journey, Baby misses her sister and soon discovers that Eugenia has missed her, too. Two-time Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo’s latest installment of Tales from Deckawoo Drive extols the value of both independence and family as Chris Van Dusen’s dynamic illustrations convey the story’s warmth and humor. Ages 5-8.
