BOOK REVIEW

FELICITY & CORDELIA by Lisa Jahn-Clough
ADVENTURE
Released: Feb. 15, 2011

"The bunnies' differences are played up amusingly in both words and pictures, but there's still not enough here to make Felicity and Cordelia stand out from the odd-couple crowd—though Felicity's letters home lend themselves nicely to classroom application. (Picture book. 4-8)"
Jahn-Clough's low-key tale of friendship breaks no new ground but is pleasantly quirky nonetheless. Read full book review >

DAVID COPPERFIELD by Charles Dickens
CHILDREN'S
Released: Oct. 1, 1995

"Marks's storytelling skills are further demonstrated by the different sizes of the pictures, their distribution, and layout—on the whole, they evocatively conjure this hearty tale, and will send readers off to the original. (Picture book. 8-12)"
A more or less self-contained excerpt from the novel, in a creative abridgement done by Dickens for one of his public readings (Anthea Bell's afterword provides notes about these performances and the texts Dickens prepared for them). Read full book review >
