Weekend Reviews (II)

Whew! I'm exhausted after reading The New York Times Children's Book Section. But there are more reviews out there this Saturday. Here's what I've found:

Janet Christie reviews three very different books for the Scotsman: Powder Monkey and Prison Ship, by Paul Dowswell, Ten Minute Histories: Battles, by Emily Allison, Stone Circles, by Caroline Crewe-Read, and The Emperor of Absurdia, by Chris Riddell.

Amanda Craig considers Scott Westerfeld's Uglies, Pretties, and Specials for the Times.
