Weekend Reviews (II)

What a great weekend for children's reviews. After Saturday's amazing set of links, I was surprised to find still a few more. Here they are:

Susan Carpenter reviews Allegra Goodman's The Other Side of the Island in the Los Angeles Times. She recommends this title for both teens and adults.

Hazel Mollison talks to Mike Nicholson about his second novel for children, Grimm, in the Scotsman. ("It is a classic story of a haunted hotel with a modern twist – an 11-year-old 'marketing genius' is given the task of rebranding it." Sounds like fun1)
