How do you make friends when you move to a new town? This boy has no idea where to start. He’s really down in the dumps, but when his mother makes him take a walk around the block, he decides to call out for Neville (Schwartz & Wade, $17.99). When he shouts out this name, the boy unwittingly becomes the talk of his new town, and finds some new friends in the process. G. Brian Karas’s pitch-perfect illustrations increase in color and vibrancy with the boy’s changing mood, and turn bright by the time Norton Juster’s story comes to its surprise conclusion. Ages 4-7.
