Bridget and the Gray Wolves (Pija Lindenbaum) - A timid girl tames a wolf pack. Bridget is a very careful child. She never climbs on roofs or pets dogs or jumps over ditches. In fact, she's afraid of most things. But when Bridget gets lost and meets up with a pack of gray wolves in the deep, dark woods, she takes charge. First she makes them play even though they prefer to "lurk behind trees and snarl." They aren't much good at games, though. When their stomachs begin to growl, she feeds them her mud soup, and finally she puts them to bed after having sent them off to their peeing trees. Humorous, bold art-- little, freckled Bridget in her red, hooded sweatshirt, huge shaggy, gray wolves, and tall purple pines-- perfectly compliments this very funny tale. Recommended for ages 4-8.
Bridget and the Moose Brothers (Pija Lindenbaum) - Can moose be Bridget's brothers? Bridget is fed up with being an only child -- it's too quiet. If she just had a brother or a sister, she wouldn't feel so lonely. One day Bridget comes home to discover some moose sitting outside her building, and she decides to try them out as brothers. But the moose brothers don't turn out to be the sort of siblings she had in mind. Maybe peace and quiet is okay after all…This follow-up to Bridget and the Gray Wolves and Bridget and the Muttonheads is riotously funny and wild and will once again have readers both young and old laughing at Pija Lindenbaum's hilarious illustrations and Bridget's winning personality. Recommended for ages 4-8.
Bridget Fidget and The Most Perfect Pet (Joe Berger) - When a big box arrives one morning, Bridget Fidget leaps out of bed and spins down the stairs. She knows what's inside - a unicorn! After all, she's always wanted a pet unicorn, so it must be a pet unicorn. But inside the box is just another…smaller…box. And it's buzzing. This is no unicorn. But could it possibly be something even better? For all kids who've ever wanted what they couldn't have (because it's a mythical creature or just beyond the family budget), here's Bridget Fidget - the girl in a whirl who finally sees that even better things can come in unexpectedly small packages. Like Eloise and Olivia before her, Bridget's got moxie to spare. Recommended for ages 3-6.
Bridget Jones's Diary (Helen Fielding) - Bridget Jones's Diary is the devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton on a permanent doomed quest for self-improvement. Caught between the joys of Singleton fun, and the fear of dying alone and being found three weeks later half eaten by an Alsatian; tortured by Smug Married friends asking, "How's your love life" with lascivious, yet patronizing leers, Bridget resolves to reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1.5 inches, visit the gym three times a week not just to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult and learn to program the VCR. With a blend of flighty charm, existential gloom, and endearing self-deprecation, the diary has touched a raw nerve with millions of readers the world round. Read it, laugh and crash your head onto the table before you cry, "Bridget Jones is me!" The USA Today says: "Screamingly funny." Recommended for ages young adult.
