BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: April 24, 2012

"An entertaining story of individual heroism, which Brady surrounds by an equally entertaining account of the North African invasion, the largest amphibious operation in history at the time."

TIM AND THE BLANKET THIEF by John Prater
ADVENTURE
Released: Oct. 29, 1993

"Nice. (Picture book. 3-6)"
Tim is, well, timid; unlike the boisterous other children Prater depicts in his engaging, freely rendered pencil-and- watercolor illustrations, he doesn't like ``noisy, messy fun or being splashed or roughhousing.'' What he does love, despite the teasing, is his blanket; and when a pointy-hatted creature—a sort of shadow with a shadow of its own—steals this constant companion while Tim sleeps, he sets out, with unaccustomed boldness, in a dreamlike pursuit over mountains and seas to the thief's ``dreadful lair.'' Tim's brave demand for his blanket dissipates the thief's ``huge darkness,'' whereupon the lad retrieves not only his own but a hoard of other ``blankets, teddy bears, and best-loved toys'' and goes home to a hero's welcome.
