Mice at the Movies

Claire reviews The Tale of Despereaux movie.

I still crack up thinking about my librarian friend who, when Despereaux won the Newbery, was besieged by culturally anxious helicopter parents who wanted a copy of "The Tale of Day-pair-EUH."

Speaking of Newbery awards -- why is the Boston Globe suddenly (and belatedly) interested in that old SLJ article by Silvey? Did someone stir them up - or are they just behind the times? Hardly seems to be NEWS at this late date.
