Max and Marla by Alexandra Boiger - ESSENTIAL

Boiger, Alexandra Max and Marla.  PICTURE BOOK.  Putnam (Penguin), 2015.  $18.  

Max and his owl pet Marla are determined that they are Olympians.  Try as they might, something seems to always go wrong.  But they stick to their dream until they have results. 

Boiger writes and illustrates an adorable book about dreams and determination, and adds a grand wintery scheme as the backdrop.  I was highly amused.
