Zany creatures—from furry monsters to more recognizable animals—celebrate different kinds of glittery lines that offer plenty of eye candy. The textural lines seem to have minds of their own as they shimmy across the pages, creating patterns and informing the simple, rhyming verse. On one spread, a mummy's bandages are unwrapped (“lines that curve/ lines that curl”), while on the following page a pink whale's blowhole makes “underwater lines that swirl.” Later, a red cat's paw loops through “lines with doggies at the end” (the accompanying image shows nine pink dachshunds on leashes). The creatures—and even a mean-looking thundercloud—brim with personality and create a sense of playful irreverence. Ages 4–8. (July)
