BOOK REVIEW

TOM CLANCY UNDER FIRE by Grant Blackwood
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 16, 2015

"A complex international adventure that's less military hardware-centric than Clancy solo, but Blackwood uses 'notional,' which fans will know is homage to the maestro."
Clancy's gone, but Blackwood (Dead or Alive, 2010, etc.) continues his international action-adventure series by dispatching Jack Ryan Jr. into espionage's "wilderness of mirrors."Read full book review >

TOM CLANCY POINT OF CONTACT by Mike Maden

TOM CLANCY SUPPORT AND DEFEND by Mark Greaney

"Then again, this book is supposed to be about art, so maybe the words don't matter. (Picture book. 3-8)"

TOM by Tomie dePaola
by Tomie dePaola, illustrated by Tomie dePaola
CHILDREN'S
Released: Feb. 24, 1993

"A delightfully offbeat vignette of boyish mischief reinforcing the bond between generations; dePaola's handsomely designed illustrations have unusual warmth here, subtly expressing the characters' affection. (Picture book. 4-8)"
Another autobiographical story from dePaola, this time about his grandfather, who ingenuously explains that "We're named after each other, Tommy. Read full book review >
