There’s a theme to this week’s picture book selections: pets! Most of these aren’t your ordinary pets — we’ve got blue whales, dogs that aren’t, cats that are, and a very talented rhinoceros. For more pet books, both silly and serious, look for “When Dinosaurs Came with Everything,” by Elise Broach, “How Smudge Came,” by Nan Gregory, and “Mr. Wuffles,” by David Wiesner.
“Billy Twitters and his Blue Whale Problem,” by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Adam Rex.
