Jamie Anderson wouldn't... (Annick, $5.95)

In Carol Meredith's Jamie Anderson wouldn't... (Annick, $5.95) a boy with yellow-brown scribbly hair won't get out of bed. All week his family tries to lure him from his cozy shelter. They even bring in a skateboarding doctor. Finally Dad gets to the heart of the problem. Jamie's afraid to go to kindergarten. Meredith, of Salt Spring Island, has been a cellist and bed-and-breakfast manager. She's also the author of the RV Cookbook, A Taste for Travel. Watercolour illustrations are by Lorrie Szekat, who collects fireflies and can flick light-switches on and off with her toes. 1-55037-456-7
