What's Happening in the New Horn Book

The March/April The Horn Book carries a couple of articles on graphic novels. I particularly liked Graphic Novels 101 by Robin Brenner, who edits three websites that review graphic novels.

Judith Ridge from The Misrule Blog also has an article in this issue.

Here's something I found particularly interesting: The last issue carried of Louis Sachar's Small Steps. This issue carries a full-page ad for the book!

Let's look at reviews:

Cecil Castellucci (Boy Proof) has a new book, The Queen of Cool.

Someone from Readerville told me about Catherine Fisher, so I noticed the review of her fantasy Darkhenge.

I'd never heard of Simon Mason or The Quigleys but the review of his new book The Quigleys in a Spin sounds very good.

Megan Whalen Turner's The King of Attoila received a starred review. I loved the first book in this series and am looking forward to this one, the third.
