LEE & ELAINE by Ann Rower
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 19, 2002

"The upshot: She doesn't have much of a story, and neither do we."

GERGIE LEE by Sharon Phillips Denslow
CHILDREN'S
Released: May 1, 2002

"Country and city kids alike will grin over the trio's encounters with a haunted house, a neighborhood goat, a giant catfish, and a huge storm in this deceptively simple first chapter book. (Fiction. 7-9)"
Most main characters speak but in this delightfully charming story about J.D.'s summer on his Grandmother's farm, the title player moos—Georgie Lee is a cow, and a right smart one at that. Read full book review >
