THE QUEEN OF DREAMLAND by Ingrid Tomey
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 1, 1996

"Few readers will care about any of the unattractive characters in this dreary tale from Tomey (Grandfather's Day, 1992, etc.): Julie is selfish and unpleasant; Loretta is cardboard; the Soluses are colorless; and Bagley is in service to the plot, and not a character at all. (Fiction. 10-14)"
Julie, 14, was adopted as an infant by the Soluses but is now consumed by the need to know her real parents. Read full book review >
GRANDFATHER'S DAY by Ingrid Tomey
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 9, 1992

"Several of the b&w drawings emphasize the story's more somber aspects; the jacket painting shows one of the lighter moments that keep the narrative from becoming maudlin. (Fiction. 7- 10)"
Rudeen didn't really mind giving up her bedroom when Grampa moved in, but she can't understand why he is so unkempt and uncommunicative—he won't even visit her school on Grandfather's Day after she has bragged about how well he plays the harmonica. Read full book review >
NEPTUNE PRINCESS by Ingrid Tomey
CHILDREN'S
Released: April 30, 1992

"An unusually promising debut. (Fiction. 7-10)"
A predictable first novel that's redeemed by a fresh, believable third-person voice. Read full book review >
