- A Fine Dessert: Four Centuries, Four Families, One Delicious Treat by Emily Jenkins with illustrations by Sophie Blackall. When I was a teenager, I read substantial historical novels that covered generations of the same family. This picture book covers families making the same dessert over four hundred years. Not exactly the same, but you can see the attraction for me. In addition, the reviewer says the book is "an effective introduction to the very idea of history."
- No Parking at the End Times by Bryan Bliss. This one sounds as if it's going to be a post-Rapture story. But then where's the Rapture?
- The Cottage in the Woods by Katherine Coville. Jane Eyre with bears.
- Tales of Bunjitsu Bunny by John Himmelman. Martial arts with bunnies.
- In Search of the Little Prince: The Story of Antoine de Saint-Exupery by Bimba Landmann. I'm game for another Saint-Exupery book.

Waiting On Everyday
I've never taken part in one of those Waiting on Wednesday type meme things, though a great many people do. Recently I've actually been taking Wednesdays off from blogging. Time Management Tuesday can be exhausting. But I saw a number of books I found interesting in the most recent Horn Book. Waiting on Wednesday seemed a good opportunity to mention them here.
