Crickwing - Janell Cannon Comparatively slight, this story of a cockroach with a broken wing and a flair for food preparation is heartwarming and sweet. Cannon explores the nature of bullying in a particularly subtle way, and ties it all up with a multi-species bow at the end. Doesn't stand up to her earlier work, in my opinion, though the illustrations are delightful.
