Flawed Dogs

by Berkeley Breathed

Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and children's picture book author Berkeley Breathed crafts a remarkable, hilarious, and yes, even poignant celebration of "flawed dogs": "The bent and plain,/ The unbalanced bod,/ The imperfect people/ And differently pawed." At the core of this "2004 Catalogue of the Piddleton Dog Pound's Very Available Leftovers" is Heidy Strudelberg, "Garbo, Joan of Arc, and Mother Teresa of the nation's unwanted dogs: a reclusive warrior-saint of poundpups." Breathed reveals how Heidy was ousted from the high-falutin' vanity dog breeding world when she awarded a muddy three-legged street mutt the Westminster Best in Show ribbon. Now, it seems, Heidy has retreated to the Vermont mountains to run the Last Chance Dog Pound, where defective dogs go for one more attempt at getting adopted. The bulk of Flawed Dogs, once you've laughed your way through the introductions and formalities, is a gallery of pathetic pups with accompanying verses. A picture of an extra-long Dachshund startling the dishes right out of her mistress's hands, is captioned thus: "Here's Sal, it seems no one wants her./ Her ends will stroll off and wander./ A long doggie weenie/ Of noisy linguine/ Sal barks at her butt way down yonder." Dog lovers will be all in a tizzy to get their hands on this crazy, wonderful salute to blemished beagles and faulty foxhounds everywhere. (Ages 8 and older) --Emilie Coulter

"You think you can kick the front door open?" "No sweat," Chet answered. Frank peered back in through the window and saw Joe peek around the corner of the inner room. That was what he had been waiting for. He pulled the screen door, and it creaked loudly. "Now!" he barked to Chet. Chet planted his foot next to the door knob, then kicked hard. The door groaned and snapped open. Frank dashed in and confronted the figure sitting in the chair. "Frank!" Joe shouted. "It's Callie." Frank would have been relieved to find his girlfriend, but the digital timer on the bomb that was ticking at her feet showed that in thirty seconds they would all be dead.

The Flight to Seven Swan Bay

by June O. Leavitt

Grades 4-6. A survival story with a unique twist: 15 Orthodox Jews are flying to an isolated Jewish community, taking with them a gift of a Torah scroll. Their plane, leaking fuel, makes an emergency landing on a lake surrounded by forests. The passengers (young children, teens and adults) evacuate the damaged plane and try to survive in the autumnal forest, all the while maintaining their Orthodox life style. With structure, order and cooperation, they ingeniously devise utensils and tools and prepare food. Despite unhappiness, despair and worry, they are supportive of one another and operate as a community until rescued. The writing is uneven, and at times awkward, but there is suspense and adventure. Black-and-white drawings are stiff but adequate. Adult characterization is good, but the children, with one or two exceptions, are thinly developed. George's My Side of the Mountain (Dutton, 1967) and Julie of the Wolves (Harper, 1972) are superior books. However, this book has a place in collections where the unusual combination of wilderness survival and Jewish orthodoxy will be wanted. A glossary and chapter notes explain Hebrew terms and religious laws referred to in the text. Ruth Shire, Mount Vernon Public Library, N.Y. Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Flora And Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures

by Kate Dicamillo K. G. Campbell

Winner of the 2014 Newbery Medal. Holy unanticipated occurrences! A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a genre-breaking new novel by master storyteller Kate DiCamillo. It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, is the just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry -- and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart. From #1 New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo comes a laugh-out-loud story filled with eccentric, endearing characters and featuring an exciting new format -- a novel interspersed with comic-style graphic sequences and full-page illustrations, all rendered in black-and-white by up-and-coming artist K. G. Campbell.
