Standout Summertime Picture Books

DUDE!
By Aaron Reynolds. Illustrated by Dan Santat.

So much action and humor, so few words — just one, in fact (see the title), written in capitals or lowercase, in speech bubbles, or streeeeetched out. Expressed in the cheerfully bonkers illustrations by Santat, a Caldecott medalist, “Dude!” tells the story of a platypus and a beaver who go surfing together and meet a shark. A friendly one, it turns out, who wants to catch some waves with them: “Dude…?” he offers when they meet. More than half the fun, of course, is in reading this book out loud. Be ready for even the youngest kids to “read” it, too.

40 pp. Neal Porter/Roaring Brook. $17.99. (Ages 4 to 8)
