When Marcus Moore Moved In

by Rebecca Bond

Published by Megan Tingley Books / Little, Brown, 2003
32 pages
ISBN: 0-316-10458-2

Ages 5 - 8

As excited as Marcus is on the day he moves into 44 MacDougal Street, there's no welcoming committee to greet him. Or is there? Who's skipping by on the sidewalk? Who's whizzing by on a bike? It's Katherine Brown, full of energy and enthusiasm and terrific ideas for fun. Rebecca Bond's gleeful picture book celebrates new friends and new possibilities. The author/artist's sprightly text balances judicious use of rhyme and alliteration with bursts of onomatopoeia. Her breezy acrylic illustrations use varied perspectives to capture the busyness of an urban neighborhood, the chaos of moving day, and the joy of a newfound friend. CCBC categories: Picture Books for School-Aged Children.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
