In this sprightly offering from the team behind Time for Bed, Roly Poly the polar bear thinks life is -grand--until the morning he learns that the wee bear sharing his bed is his new brother, Monty: -But I never asked for a baby brother, and I don-t want one now!- His protests form a refrain that grows more emphatic-and provides resonant readaloud opportunities-as he becomes increasingly irked at playful Monty-s presence. Yet when Monty becomes stranded on an ice floe, Roly Poly has a change of heart and emerges a hero, and the two -lived happily ever after. Well.... Mostly.- Fox-s spare, wry text leaves readers ample room to embellish and personalize the story, while the mixed-media illustrations humorously portray the siblings- interactions. Dyer fashioned the bears using needle felting, a process that involves poking raw wool with a barbed needle to alter the density of its fiber, and Birdsall (the Penderwicks series) helped Dyer stage the scenarios and then photographed them. The resulting, beguiling images have a 3-D quality and authentically capture the jumbled emotions that accompany the arrival of a sibling. Ages 4-8. (Nov.)
