Michael Perry makes me laugh out loud and not many writers do, unfortunately. This time he has fictionalized all those crazy loveable people from his early non-fiction books on rural life in Wisconsin. On Christmas eve Harley Jackson's holstein cow gives birth to a calf with the face of Jesus on it's side. And while Harley exclaims, "well, thats trouble," it's really where the fun begins. Read, laugh and enjoy!

Alice Hoffman, known for her beautiful descriptive language in her adult books has written her first book for 9 to 12 year old girls. It is magical and a delight. Hoffman has written a spellbinding story that deals with a young girl (Twig) finding friendship, love and acceptance for herself and her family, despite the curse of having sons who grow wings! I found myself cheering for those night fliers.
