Edward in Deep Water: 3

Rosemary Wells, Author Dial Books $7.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8037-1882-1
Featuring the wryly understated texts and drolly detailed ink-and-watercolor art of the Max and Ruby titles, these paper-over-board books introduce the late-blooming Edward the Unready. In each misadventure, the expressive-eyed bear faces a new, decidedly uncomfortable situation. At a swimming party, the lifeguard calls Edward's parents to pick him up after his water wings deflate and he is rescued from the pool's bottom. When a blizzard forces Edward to spend the night at his pal Anthony's house, Anthony's parents realize how miserable their sleepless guest is and dig out the car to take him home. And Edward's first week of playschool is so painful for him that his teacher sends for his parents, announcing, ""Not everyone is ready for the same things at the same time."" That, of course, encapsulates the message imparted by each of these tales, which inventively reassure kids that it is okay to be ""unready."" Ages 2-6. (Oct.)
