A Circle of Cats


Charles de Lint is fast becoming my favorite author, check out this beautiful children´s book illustated by Charles Vess. It´s a charming tale of a little girl bitten by a snake and saved by cats, tree spirit and a spirit panther. It´s loosely connected to Medicine Road that I talked about a few posts back.

ONe of my favorite children's books is "Coyotes New Suit" by Thomas King. If you ever get the chance, check it out. I too love childrens books and just finnished a Childrens Lit. course this semester that I loved!

I've heard that this is good. It's sealed. I need to buy it. Thanks.

thanks Sean I will check out "Coyotes new suit" I love children´s books too, Ryan I just got "the book thief" and started it, it looks promising, but I´m a bit worried that the ending will be too sad for me. I´m a sucker for happy endings. Although some of my favorite (children´s)books have a bittersweet ending.
