Sunday Love by Alison Paul

Paul, Alison. Sunday Love. Houghton Mifflin, 2010. $16.00. PICTURE BOOK. Bruno the Burglar digs out of prison with a spoon and is on the run. He evades the police several times with the help of Cupid on his way to get a free sundae. Before he can swallow his first spoonful, he is caught and sent back to the slammer. Luckily Cupid comes to jail bringing Bruno’s true love—ice cream. The black, white and red illustrations are so clever and charming that no formal narrative is needed. Each page has a different format, often with picture boxes similar to a graphic novel. A fun read for Valentines or any time of the year. MS – ESSENTIAL. Samantha, Public Librarian.
