Phoebe and Digger

author: Tricia Springstubb
illustrator: Jeff Newman

When Mama got a new baby, Phoebe got a new digger. And when Mama is busy with the baby, Phoebe and Digger are busy, too. Finally, Mama says it’s time to go to the park, the one with real dirt, where Phoebe and Digger happily build and knock down and dig things up. That is, until a big girl comes by, with mean teeth and grabby hands. Phoebe tries everything she can, but what if she never gets Digger back? Comical illustrations and a spot-on story are sure to make readers of all ages smile in recognition.

“Nuanced and humorous, this is a worthy addition to the new-sibling shelf.” — Kirkus Reviews
