Review: ‘Positively Izzy’

‘Positively Izzy’ follows up ‘Invisible Emmie’ with a story that is less about the mores of middle school than about the awkward relationships between parents and children at that age.

Review: The Giver

This faithful adaptation of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ is an excellent companion to the original novel.

Review: ‘The Cardboard Kingdom’

“Give a kid a cardboard box….” You’ll often hear parents quip that their child was more interested in the box rather than the new toy. And I know when my groceries are delivered in cardboard boxes, my kids beg me to keep it around. It becomes a house, a bus, and anything their imagination allows.

There’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, countless fractured fairy tales, and this year I read a dystopian version of Peter Pan. So picking up a copy of The Wendy Project was a natural choice […]

Review: Knife’s Edge

After reading volume 1 of the Four Points series, I was left hanging. So were my students. One student, Albert* (Name changed), asked me when volume 2 was coming out. I told him the wait was a while, and he asked me to let the author and artist know that he was willing to help […]
