Weekend Reveiws (II)

Hi, All! I'm back with more of this weekend's reviews. They're late because I'm working on a new template finally. So, if you see that some mangled site has linked to you in technorati, it's my work in progess. Ignore it for the time being, please.

On to the reviews!

Harriet Tubman, Secret Agent, by Thomas B. Allen, is the Washington Post Book of the Week.

Amanda Craig considers Viking Books for the Times. (The Times is undergoing a site design at the moment and the site is SLOW. So far I can't find the Children's Book of the Week.)

During such a slow weekend, it's nice to see Mary Harris Russell does not let us down. This week she reviews six new titles for the Chicago Tribune, including:

  • Terrible Storm, by Carol Otis Hurst, pictures by S.D. Schindler
  • The beautiful New Clothes for New Year's Day, by Hyun-Joo Bae
  • Do Not Pass Go, by Kirkpatrick Hill
  • War, Women, and the News: How Female Journalists Won the Battle to Cover World War II, by Catherine Gourley
  • Big Bug Surprise, by Julia Gran
  • I Don't Like Gloria!, by Kaye Umansky, illustrated by Margaret Chamberlain
