Stuart Sets Sail

Paperback

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-These two beginning readers are based on incidents from the movie Stuart Little, which took its name from the book, but basically that's all. In one story, the little mouse climbs into a vase while hiding from a cat, but then needs the help of the feline to get free. In the second book, Stuart has an adventure with a large fish and a turtle while piloting a toy boat across a park lake. Both are in an accessible, easy-reader format with large type and colorful pictures based on the movie, but they are a poor relation to E. B. White's famous Stuart Little (HarperCollins, 1945). Neither "adventure" is from the original book, so why steal the stars? It is blatant commercialism to take a famous character and a few familiar details (the names of the boat and the cat) and put them in ...

Girls on Film (The A-List), Vol. 2

April 2004
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 9 Up-The sequel to the The A-List (Little, Brown, 2003) is a combination of Sex and the City and The Women, complete with backbiting, sabotage, gossip, and scheming set in La La land where overprivileged, poor-little-rich-girls endlessly indulge themselves. Though the issues and scenes are current, the book reads like fantasy as this much intrigue would wear out even the most devious, superficial girl-on-the-go. The one stable figure in this milieu is Anna Percy, an East-Coast transplant who ventures to California to change her good-girl image, but who finds that she doesn't have the stomach for the escapades of her peers. Trying to get over her powerful crush on Ben Birnbaum, a guy she views as all wrong for her, and attempting to settle with Adam, the good guy who just doesn't light her fire, Anna is...

Book Review
China Bayles, a lawyer who's dropped out of practice but hasn't yet handed in her bar card, is back in business at Thyme and Season, her herb shop in Pecan Springs, Texas. The shop is so successful that China and Ruby, a friend with another remarkably successful New Age boutique named Crystal Cave, have added a tea room--named, of course, Thyme for Tea. Pecan Springs is getting to sound a lot like Sausalito, but apparently a lot of tourists pass through the west Texas town on their way to or from the Pecan Pageant, the Herb Fair, and, presumably, other unnamed attractions.

This ninth China Bayles mystery is a cozy case of confused property lines that lead a couple of likable people into a confrontation that ends in murder. Unfortunately, the dead man was China's main supplier of the herb of the title, and Christmas...

From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2-Large, well-spaced text with lots of repetition works well with the endearing illustrations of woodland animals. Ruby, a raccoon, is all set to paint a picture of a tree, but her friends come along one by one and want to be included in the painting. She is very accommodating. When she puts her paintbrush down, her friends all feel that important defining aspects of themselves are missing, but Ruby insures them that their "best parts" are in her masterpiece-their smiles. Animals in pinafores and overalls are often used in children's books, but, in this case, the ink-and-watercolor illustrations are fresh, stimulating, and full of charm. The story includes common sight words and complete sentences, and new vocabulary is simple enough for sounding out. Although the theme is not unusual, the...

Valerie Easton Seattle Times : The title says it all, for this is a 750-page book stuffed with plants from trees to groundcovers crossreferenced to common names. [A] sure-to-be-well-thumbed reference book.
Valerie Easton Horticulture : If you want to track down any of the hot new 'it' plants...you can take advantage of the 336 nurseries and more than 50,000 plants indexed...in this sure-to-be-well-thumbed reference book.
Dorothy Rodal Hardy Plant Society of Oregon Bulletin : If you like to buy plants, but cannot always find the ones that you want, then this book you must have. I cannot imagine how much time and effort it took for the [authors] to put this book together. If I had done it, it would have cost hundreds of dollars - not $19.95.

Book of No: 250 Ways to Say It -- and Mean It and Stop Pleasing People Forever

From Publishers Weekly
Do you feel guilty when your child demands that you launder his soccer uniform immediately? Does an out-of-town friend suddenly want you to clear your calendar for an unexpected visit? In this handy manual, social psychologist Newman (Parenting an Only Child) writes with humor but a no-nonsense tone, offering 250 short, dramatic scenes that demonstrate workable techniques for helping you just say no. Newman contends that for many people, saying yes to whatever is asked of them is an unhealthy pattern driven by a need for approval, love or admiration, rather than a desire to help. To those who make a habit of accommodating others against their better judgment, the author suggests making a weekly list of yeses, noting if your time is well managed, learning to prioritize and set limits and giving up the need to be...
