No Nap! Yes Nap!, Hardback (August 2014)
A humorous naptime book for baby (and sleepy mam, too) - a first-time collaboration from a best-selling author and award-winning illustrator.
Earthquack, Paperback (October 2005)
When Chucky Ducky hears the ground rumble, he's sure it's an "earthquack," while Iggy Piggy thinks it's just hogwash. Filled with wordplay, rhyme, and alliteration, this sweet story features lighthearted, full-color illustrations.
Bedhead, Hardback (December 2003)» View all books by Marge Palatini
After many unsuccessful attempts to control his unruly hair one morning, Oliver and his family think that they have solved the problem--until he gets to school and finds that it is school picture day.
US Kirkus Review » Though Moser veers off course on one page, this tale of a temporary traffic jam at the local troll bridge will draw fresh bursts of hilarity from fans of Earthquack! (2002) and similar riffs on familiar folktales. A surly gent who resembles, in characteristically droll, realistic illustrations, a diminutive orangutan in ill-fitting human clothes and a hard hat, stops the jalopy driven by Billy Bob, Billy Bo and Just Plain Billy, demanding they "start passing the buck" if they want to cross the bridge. So they pull out and inflate a plastic "car pool" to raise funds from overheated fellow travelers. Joined by Jack, Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood, the three Billys finally wash the troll collector over the side in a climactic but off-stage reversal of fortune, then motor off, leaving the even more disgruntled attendant to face a jolly ("Fee fie fo fum . . . Is that a troll I smell? . . . Yummy yum yum!") green new arrival. Comic flourishes galore in this breezy retelling, though no match for the richness of language and feeling in Patricia Rae Wolff's Toll-Bridge Troll (1995), illustrated by Kimberly Bulcken Root. (Picture book/folktale. 6-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
