THE GADGET by Paul Zindel
CHILDREN'S
Released: March 31, 2001

"While this is not Zindel's best writing, by cleverly intertwining fiction and fact, his distinctly atmospheric tale breathes life into an exceptional moment in American history. (chronology, important people, sources) (Fiction. 11 -13)"
Fast-paced and thought-provoking, though lacking the emotional resonance of his earlier work, Zindel gives young readers a taste of what life would have been like for a child living in a top secret American military base in the closing months of WWII. Read full book review >
THE DOOM STONE by Paul Zindel
ADVENTURE
Released: Nov. 30, 1995

"A deadly disappointment for fans of Zindel's earlier work, the book may sate goremeisters who liked Loch, as well as readers who routinely wrap themselves in paperback horror series. (Fiction. 13+)"
Zindel's sojourn away from realistic landscapes and toward more supernatural realms (The Loch, 1994, etc.) continues in this bloody tale of an American teenager's adventure at Stonehenge. Read full book review >

THE PIGMAN AND ME by Paul Zindel
BIOGRAPHY
Released: Oct. 30, 1992

"Photos not seen. (Autobiography. 12+)"
In the irrepressible, bittersweet style of his novels, Zindel offers an autobiographical vignette from his teen years, when he and his mother and sister shared a house in the Staten Island community of Travis with a fatherless Italian family whose warmhearted ``Nonno [grandfather] Frankie'' was the original for Zindel's The Pigman (1968).
