Around the World in Eighty Days
Jules Verne

Sept 1991
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up?To most modern kids, classics may be great, worthy, even exciting stories, but they were written in and for their own times and the context can sometimes be obscure. Using the visually irresistible printing techniques popularized by the "Eyewitness" series, these two books, when prominently displayed, will probably attract more impulse readers than some of the dustier editions. But do they accomplish their stated aim? Direct textual illustration is plentiful, lively, and useful. The reproductions of prints, photographs, and maps that pepper each page and are intended to enhance readers' grasp of the times, however, are a mixed success. There is a sameness to them and an arbitrary feel to their use. Pirate buffs will find Treasure Island's variety of ship drawings, details of sailing minutiae, and...

From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-Told from a bird dog's point of view, this sibling-rivalry story chronicles the arrival and gradual assimilation of a puppy into the family. T.P.'s narration has its funny moments as he pouts, growls at Mocha's incessant questions, and thinks that he has outfaced three coyotes before seeing that he has been rescued by the appearance of Jeff, his boy. The older dog is able to prove himself, however, when a Canada goose tries to attack the swimming puppy and nearly drowns her. Wallace creates plausible doglike thoughts and selects what T.P. is able to comprehend: he can decipher human talk, but doesn't understand telephones, television, or the remote-controlled "magic gate." He has a doggy nose for scents, enjoys marking the territory as he checks out the rural property, and treats the family cat...

From School Library Journal
Grade 4 Up-As in previous volumes of th is popular series, selections represent a wide variety of cultures and include a mix of familiar and exotic tales. Sophisticated readers will enjoy the mythological resonance of "Dicey and Orpus," a traditional African-American tale that parallels the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. Others may be inspired to read some of the longer works from which tales have been extracted, such as Washington Irving's "Guests from Gibbet Island" or Hans Christian Andersen's "The Rose Elf." Younger children will simply appreciate San Souci's ability to condense a scary story without softening its impact or sacrificing the flow and tone of the text. Rogers's black-and-white illustrations of scary images enhance the book's appeal. Extensive notes on the origins and incarnations of the...

From Publishers Weekly
Mud, the Blossoms' rambunctious dog who "had never turned down a walk in his life," takes center stage in Byars's event-filled fifth installment about this irrepressible clan. Ages 8-12. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Kirkus Reviews
A little like A Midsummer Night's Dream, this fifth romp with the Blossom clan flits lightly from amusing episode to hilarious set scene, the characters mixing, matching, and eventually sorting themselves out. Maggie and Ralphie (who now, with the help of his artificial limb, is bicycle-borne) are having a lovers' spat; old Mad Mary (the Vulture Lady, and Junior's best friend) has disappeared; Junior has the honor of keeping Scooty, the class hamster, for the weekend--but Mud, Pap's dog, seems to have eaten him and is now...

However, the resident phantom turns out to be Sir Percival, a harmless teenager who smells like strawberries. Before long, the girls discover that the real ogres are the landlords, miserable and selfish busybodies who hate anything doubled. They want to take back the castle, now a bed-and-breakfast and the only home Daphne has ever known. Quicker than you can say "sitcom resolution," the three witches call up an army of ghosts led by Sir Percival to scare the landlords into never interfering again. Although the plot is slight, the twins' personalities offer a nice contrast;...

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5-This beginning chapter book is a coming-of-age story about a girl trying to make sense of the world around her. Chelsea Garing wants to be perfect. At school, at home, or in church, the fourth grader follows the rules. Danny Repetti is her opposite. In church, he laughs when her candlelighter goes out; at school, she tattles on him for making her drop her sandwich. Her friend Naomi Goldberg tells her that she was "mean," which causes Chelsea to question her own idea of perfection. The story takes place mainly in church, and the setting is used to ask some heavy questions. Jewish characters and a scene depicting the celebration of Hanukkah are included as well. Expressive full-page illustrations capture the highlights of the story.Heather Ulesoo, New York Public LibraryCopyright © Reed Business...

From Publishers Weekly
Less weighty than some of Griffin's previous novels (The Other Shepards; Sons of Liberty), this humorous fantasy introduces two witches who are identical twins. Ten-year-old Luna and Claire (born 13 minutes apart) may look the same on the outside, but on the inside they are "as different as the sun and moon, peaches and peanut butter, or long division and poetry." Unbeknownst to their parents and brother, both of them have received special powers from a recessive gene inherited by Head Witch Arianna, their grandmother ("Grandy"). According to the "Witch Decree," they are not allowed to cast spells at home, so more often than not, they have to rely on human smarts to solve their dilemmas. For instance, the twins fear that their divorced father's engagement to a "big and loud" Texan named Fluffy could result in...
