Animals with human characteristics have been appearing in picture books for so long that their place or purpose in a story is rarely questioned — readers accept and embrace the conventions around all permutations of talking, clothed, and civically engaged creatures. But anthropomorphism often has a specific function and three new releases show how different the results can be when animals start talking. Motivated by the examples of flight she notices around her, Zora makes many unsuccessful attempts at liftoff, all the while chided by a cat named Tully. Both animal characters in the story fulfill the expectations of their respective species — Zora is lovably dopey and Tully is smugly superior. Two hilarious back-to-back aerial illustrations show Zora looking up in awe at a commercial plane followed by her sprawled out on the ground, willing herself to levitate. Some letters are underwhelming, with no clear species connection or punchline. But illustrator Jacob Grant excels at stirring up genuine feeling quickly and efficiently in the limited space he has with each letter.
