PICTURE BOOKS
(3) K-3 Translated by Audrey Hall. Illustrated by José Sanabria. A sentient newspaper offers a day's worth of impressions: it experiences loneliness after its peers are purchased ("One by one, everyone's life story began"), pride when someone uses one of its pages to clean a window, etc.; emotionally attuned collage art enhances these observations. The newspaper is so sympathetic that readers won't think twice about the odd premise of this Swiss import.
