It's a slow weekend in reviews of children's books. And that's a good thing, because I have many an e-mail to answer and links to fix at the Cybils site. So...if I owe you an e-mail or have your link to fix on the Cybils site, you'll hear from me today. Now on to the reviews:
Meghan Cox Gurdon reviews Ivan the Terrier, by Peter Catalanotto, for The Wall Street Journal.
Nancy Shohet West considers Marcella Pixley's Freak in the Boston Globe.
Kids are still reviewing books for the Los Angeles Times.
Nicolette Jones reviews Lucy and Stephen Hawking's George's Secret Key to the Universe for the Times.
Amanda Craig talks to Winnie the Witch creator Korky Paul in the Times. (Also in the Times, a poem by Michael Rosen and Allan Ahlberg reads from Funny bones.)
Mary Harris Russell reviews six new books for the Chicago Tribune, including the new E.L. Konigsburg and the new Jack Gantos.
Susan Perren reviews five new books for the Globe and Mail, including the new Polly Horvath.
