Weekend Reviews (IV)

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! I'm busy putting together the final Forest of 2006, so I'm just going to give you the review roundup straight. Here we go:

David L. Ulin reviews Big Fat Little Lit, edited by Art Spiegelman and Fran├žoise Mouly, for the Los Angeles Times. (" Featuring 36 pieces by artists such as Spiegelman, Jules Feiffer, Maurice Sendak and William Joyce, the collection is delightfully eclectic, a hodgepodge of visual and narrative styles.")

  • Peter Pan in Scarlet, by Geraldine McCaughrean (a "a splendid, witty sequel")
  • Harlem Hustle, by Janet McDonald
  • When Giants Come to Play, by Andrea Beaty, illustrated by Kevin Hawkes
  • Mr. Ferlinghetti's Poem, story and woodcuts by David Frampton
  • The Adventurous Life of Myles Standish, by Cheryl Harness
  • Leo's Dream, by Antonie Schneider, illustrated by Helga Bansch, translated from German by Alyson Cole
