Grade 4-7-Another book from the prolific sports writer. This time the plot centers around a house fire that occurs while parents are out for the evening. Neighbor Mr. Bellamy rescues the two Crawford children, but suffers smoke inhalation. Later, the fire victims claim that Mr. Bellamy, an electrician, installed faulty wiring in their home. This causes trouble between soccer teammates Dana Bellamy and Benton Crawford. If the wiring is not at fault, how did the fire start? Dana finds out something that could get Benton in trouble and has to confront him with the facts. Christopher reveals the clues slowly so that only astute readers will be able to solve the mystery before the ending. He is best at describing sports play-by-play, and his readers will not be disappointed with the added suspense.Blair...

From Kirkus Reviews
Fourth-grader Albert has always been a little afraid of the Pine Manor Nursing Home, which he passes on the way home from school; the residents wave at him, but he just can't relax until he's well past it. When Mr. Spears--a school volunteer who helps Albert with his reading--has a stroke, he can no longer live alone, and moves into Pine Manor. Albert's wish to share his newfound ability to read with the elderly man helps him overcome his fear of the home. Wilson (Becoming Felix, 1996, etc.) pens a gentle story; the moment Albert reads to Mr. Spear, and finds the other residents listening in, is done without sentimentality. (b&w illustrations, not seen) (Fiction. 7-9) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description
When Laura Ingalls Wilder was a little girl in the late 1800's, her family moved nine times in three years. The Wilders faced great hardships on the prairie. The crops they planted were destroyed by grasshoppers. Brutal snowstorms brought them close to starvation. But for Laura, who was born with her father's pioneer spirit, home wasn't a house--it was being with Ma, Pa, Mary, and baby Carrie. At the age of 65 she put pen to paper and wrote about memories. Through hard work and the help of her daughter, Rose, she became a successful author. The wonderful books she left behind tell the story of a rich life in the face of good times and bad.

From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-Sarah Simpson's family thinks that she is extraordinary, but she feels ordinary and is anxious to find a special quality that sets her apart. This concept, by itself, is interesting and well fleshed out. At school, she tries to trick the substitute teacher by switching names with her best friend, but that doesn't solve her "problem." She tries other ideas to no avail. Her solution arrives with an opportunity to help the parents of a classmate whose restaurant isn't doing well. Much too quickly, Sarah comes up with a plan-a T-shirt advertising "Wongs' Wings," a house specialty. Appealing full-page and spot illustrations appear throughout. Readers will like the protagonist, her family, and her friends. However, the author spends so much time setting up the Simpsons that there is almost no time for...
