Today is Day One of the Recommendations From Under the Radar Series. This series--organized by Colleen Mondor of Chasing Ray--focuses on books bloggers want the world to notice.

Here's what's in store today:

Finding Wonderland: The Curved Saber: The Adventure of Khlit the Cossack by Harold Lamb

Chasing Ray: Dorothy of Oz from Illusive Arts Entertainment (the Dorothy comic you should all be reading!)

Bildungsroman: Christopher Golden's Body of Evidence seriesInteractive Reader: Christopher Golden's Body of Evidence series as well

Not Your Mother's Bookclub: An interview with Robert Sharenow, author of My Mother the Cheerleader

Bookshelves of Doom: The God Beneath the Sea, Black Jack & Jack Holburn all by Leon Garfield

Writing and Ruminating: An interview with Tony Mitton and a review of his book, Plum

Chicken Spaghetti: The Illustrator's Notebook by Mohieddin Ellabad

At Semicolon, Sherry is talking picture books that should not be missed, including the lovely Nothing To Do by Russell Hoban.

I'll be running a four-part RADAR series on Helen Dunmore and her Ingo series, which will begin tomorrow. I was even lucky enough to interview Dunmore. (Whee!)
