BOOK REVIEW

THE HOGAN THAT GREAT-GRANDFATHER BUILT by Nancy Bo Flood
CHILDREN'S
Released: Feb. 16, 2014

"Flood's closing tribute to the hogan's 'beautiful structure' and central role in Navajo life is moving but not reflected in the ponderous, even joyless art. (Picture book. 6-8)"
Not rigidly cumulative but with echoes of "The House That Jack Built," a reverent, measured portrait of a Navajo family in a traditional dwelling. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

CHILDREN'S
Released: July 1, 2004

"Like the recent remake of Alan Sherman's Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah, illustrated by Jack E. Davis (p. 401), impossible to read without bursting into song—and maybe adding a few improvised lines. (Picture book. 6-8)"
Arnold's cartoon figures seem to explode across the pages with even more pop-eyed frenzy than usual in this rendition of the traditional camp song. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

FELONIOUS FELINES by Carol Gorman
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Aug. 1, 2000

"Carrie Channell, Mat Coward, Brian Lawrence, Wendi Lee, Janet Pack, Tom Piccirilli, Roman Ranieri, Peter Schweighofer, and Edo van Belkom supply fresh blood, with reprints by Carole Nelson Douglas, Joan Hess, and Nancy Pickard making the case that nine lives are never enough."
The gimmick of the latest Gorman-sponsored collection of cat mysteries (Ed Gorman's co-edited Cat Crimes Through Time, 1998, etc.) is that there's no gimmick, unless you count the presence of a dozen felines in key roles. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

PRINCE OF THIEVES by Chuck Hogan
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Aug. 1, 2004

"Hogan (The Blood Artists, 1998, etc.) writes with cool precision and a great eye for detail, progressively building suspense. Still, too much Doug and Claire and too little of the other thieves unbalances the story and gives it a disappointingly soft center."
The romance between a bank robber and one of his former hostages threatens both the unity and the safety of his criminal crew. Read full book review >
