About the book: It’s suppertime in the jungle, but Baby Gorilla refuses to eat anything Mama and Papa make for him—not banana chips with green guacamole or a piping-hot plate of plantain ravioli. He says no to a dish of bananas flambé and turns up his nose at banana soufflé! Step into the kitchen and laugh at dish after zany dish in this picture book adventure that is sure to make story times—and meal times—fun!

About the Author: Patrick Wensink is the author of Go Go Gorillas and Gorillas Go Bananas and is also the bestselling author of a bunch of boring books for grown-ups that have no pictures in them whatsoever! He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and son. Much like a certain baby gorilla, Patrick was a picky eater as a boy. His favorite way to have a banana is in a pancake. You can visit him online at www.patrickwensink.com.

With North Korea so prevalent in the news, this superb 13th outing of 8th Army investigators Sueno and Bascom from former soldier-turned-author Martin Limon, clearly shows the fragile nature of the DMZ in the 1970s, with its immense pressure for peace coupled with volatile situations so palpable and real, you could feel the tension in the air. At first, an investigation into a murdered South Korean soldier’s death turns into a mystery surrounding an American officer’s missing wife. Readers will surely appreciate Limon’s penchant for using all those military acronyms and blessedly (!) with occasional complete nomenclature for the non-military mystery buffs. This outing can be a standalone, but will inspire fans of this investigating pair to read all the others in the series. So topical and relevant, Limon nailed this mission! - Maureen
