March Stars

Or would that be March, stars!, anticipating a newly disciplined red carpet at the Oscars this year. (Forgive me, the fever is just breaking.)

Anyway, the books whose reviews will be starred in the March/April issue of the Horn Book are (in the order they will come in the book review section):

Lilly's Big Day (Greenwillow) by Kevin Henkes
My Mei Mei (Philomel) by Ed Young
Ask Me No Questions (Seo/Atheneum) by Marina Budhos
The Quigleys in a Spin (Fickling) by Simon Mason, illus. by Helen Stephens
Ptolemy's Gate: The Bartimaeus Trilogy, Book Three (Miramax/Hyperion) by Jonathan Stroud
The King of Attolia (Greenwillow) by Megan Whalen Turner
The Book Thief (Knopf) by Markus Zusak
Marvelous Mattie: How Margaret E. Knight Became an Inventor (Farrar) by Emily Arnold McCully

I'm glad to hear Ask Me No Questions is getting a star. In case it's of interest, I have an interview today with Marina Budhos about the book on my blog.

I just finished PTOLEMY'S GATE and it rocks! One of the few recent fantasy trilogies where each successive book gets stronger.

Looking forward to the others, particularly KING OF ATTOLIA.
