Weekend Reviews

I do know it is Tuesday, and not the weekend, but I figured a late roundup was better than none at all. So here we go--the weekend reviews!

It's almost that time of year: Karen MacPherson reviews Halloween books for Scripps News Service, published here in The Rocky Mountain News.

And, Rebecca Young reviews Halloween titles in The Wichita Eagle.

And, Scotland is in on the game: Kathryn Ross takes a look a Halloween books in the Scotsman.

Oh, and did you know there's an election soon? Monica and Hannah Young review political books for the youngsters in the Winston-Salem Journal.

Here's a link to this week's Publishers Weekly reviews. (I really want to read My So-Called Family.)

Stephanie Dunnewind considers many new picture books for The Seattle Times.

Mary Quattlebaum is at the helm of this week's "For Young Readers" column in the Washington Post Book World. (She reviews four new books, including The 39 Clues.)

Judith Meyrick reviews Canadian children's books for The Chronicle Herald (Nova Scotia).

Sonja Bolle is back in the Los Angeles Times, this week reviewing Marion Bataille ABC3D. It's a rave review.

Um, super weird article on Harry Potter from the Telegraph.

Interview Alert: An interview with Judith Kerr in the Times. (When Hitler Stole the Pink Rabbit was one of my favorite books as a child.)

Also in the Times: Amanda Craig + dragon books = genius review column.

Also in the Chicago Tribune, Mary Harris Russell reviews four new books in her "For Young Readers" column.

Have a great week, everyone!
