For more than thirty-five years, readers have wondered what happens to the mystery armadillo on the last page of Sandra Boynton’s classic board book, But Not the Hippopotamus. Now, at last, comes the long-awaited sequel. Behold the armadillo, a cute and curious creature who follows his nose wherever it goes. Join him as he quietly travels the less-traveled road: he picks cranberries, stops and smells the flowers, takes a nap in the meadow, searches out the source of a beautiful melody, and at day’s end passes an overeager hippo sprinting the other direction. Told with Boynton’s signature charm and unpredictability, But Not the Armadillo is a gentle and worthy companion book to But Not the Hippopotamus—perfect for curious little kids and grown-ups alike. And for everyone who has ever been concerned about the armadillo: Don’t worry. He’s completely fine just the way he is.
You can tell everybody I told you so.
It’s the greatest little nose I know.
Starring a little fox child and a big fox parent, here’s a loving ode to terrific noses of all kinds. Your Nose! is a year-round valentine in the tradition of beloved Boynton board books like Snuggle Puppy. It’s a celebration of the love between a parent and child—and of the beautiful, boop-able noses we love.
Richly detailed and realistic illustrations of various animals in their natural habitat invite children to guess which animal each nose belongs to, then to learn a variety of facts about each animal. An enjoyable, educational resource for children, caregivers, and classrooms alike.
