Fritz Newton is turning five, and he’s sure five will feel different than four. But it doesn’t. Despite new sneakers, birthday pancakes, and being the birthday king at school, he still “can’t whistle, snap his fingers … or do the monkey bars two at a time.” A perfectly paced picture book reveals that change can be subtle, and Fritz discovers that what he feels inside is where the difference matters most. Blithe pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations accompany the fine narrative. (Ages 4–6)
