SHEETZUCACAPOOPOO by Joy Behar
ANIMALS
Released: March 1, 2009

"Next to the exploits of other problem-solving pooches like Clifford or Susan Meddaugh's Martha, Max's new outing merits a quick burial in the backyard. (Picture book. 6-8)"

JOY SCHOOL by Elizabeth Berg
FICTION & LITERATURE

"A pleasant between-meals snack of the kids-are-great genre: teary, funny, Hallmarkian wise, its true space waiting among the YAs. (Author tour)"
If books were food, Berg's latest (The Pull of the Moon, 1996; Range of Motion, 1995; etc.) might be a Twinkie: the sweet tale of a precocious 13-year-old girl who falls in love with- -and loses—an older man. Read full book review >
