LESLIE by Omar Tyree
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 6, 2002

"Implausibly melodramatic portrait of a killer whose actions evoke horror rather than sympathy."

THE BIRTHDAY BOX by Leslie Patricelli
CHILDREN'S
Released: April 1, 2007

"The narrative voice is older than the child in the pictures, and next to Antoinette Portis's Not a Box (2006), and several other takes on the familiar premise, this lacks the emotional range allowed by a longer format. (Picture book. 3-5)"
Patricelli, author of several board books, graduates prematurely from cardboard to paper pages for this cheery birthday monologue narrated by a toddler who gets more play mileage out of a big box than the puppy it holds. Read full book review >
