Yes, yes, I know it's Monday. But it's better late than never as far as the weekend reviews are concerned. Here's what I found in the papers over the weekend:
Claire Martin recommends some favorites of 2007 in the Long Beach Press-Telegram.
In this week's not-a-review category, Leonard Marcus discusses the history of Golden Books in the Los Angeles Times. (Also in the Los Angeles Times, Denise Hamilton celebrates the magic of Beverly Cleary's Klickitat Street.)
Leanna Landsmann recommends "cool books for the preteen set" in the Elmira Star-Gazette.
Cecelia Goodnow recommends children's books set in "exotic locations" in the Rocky Mountain News.
Karyn Saemann reviews five holiday books for the Wisconsin Capital Times.
Profile Alert: David Mehegan profiles Tomie dePaola in the Boston Globe.
The Washington Post KidsPost section has audiobook recommendations this week.
Amanda Craig reviews Anthony Horowitz's latest Alex Rider book, Snakehead, in the Times.
Kathryn Ross reviews children's books for kids of all ages in the Scotsman. (It's a quick gift list with brief recommendations and a bonus "wild card" list at the end.)
Also in the Scotsman, Keith Gray reviews teen books. (Darn. There's that Philip Reeve Here Lies Arthur again. Must. Read. This. One.)
