For Young Readers

Hey! Elizabeth Ward's column, "For Young Readers," is back in the Washington Post's "Book World" this week.

Some unsavory animals are on this week's ticket:
  • Oh, Rats! The Story of Rats and People, by Albert Marrin, illustrated by C.B. Mordan
  • Wolves, by Emily Gravett, has finally made it over to the States and Ward finds it a "riveting little distillation of a nightmare."
  • Dooby Dooby Moo, by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin (remember Click, Clack, Moo anyone?)
  • Pigs are back in the new Olivia title
  • And, dinosaurs are as popular as ever.


I've returned to CST and Smalltown this evening. (Iowatelecom is back!) I've a stack of books, The Edge of the Forest, and Children's Book Reviews awaiting my attention. It's nice to be home, but it was a great 2 months on the road.
