Gordon and Tapir - Sebastian Meschenmoser

Gordon and Tapir (NorthSouth, $18.95) are the most recent odd couple to star in a picture book. Gordon, a fastidious penguin, loves order and calm, while Tapir (a tapir) is perfectly content with the hodgepodge of his existence. Through spare text and a series of wordless, pencil illustrations, Sebastian Meschenmoser conveys the many emotions of this unlikely pair as they settle their differences. Short-listed for the German Children’s Book of the Year Award and translated into English by David Henry Wilson, this comical, heartfelt story requires a careful eye to predict the final outcome and will prompt lots of discussion. Ages 4-8.
