September starred reviews

The following books will receive starred reviews in the September/October 2010 issue of the Horn Book Magazine:

April and Esme, Tooth Fairies by Bob Graham ((Candlewick))

The Boy in the Garden by Allen Say (Houghton)

Keeper by Kathi Appelt; illus. by August Hall (Atheneum)

Annexed by Sharon Dogar (Houghton)

Aggie the Brave by Lori Ries; illus. by Frank W. Dormer (Charlesbridge)

What Happened on Fox Street by Tricia Springstubb (Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins)

The White Horse Trick by Kate Thompson (Greenwillow)

Dark Emperor & Other Poems of the Night by Joyce Sidman; illus. by Rick Allen (Houghton)

They Called Themselves the K.K.K.: The Birth of an American Terrorist Group by Susan Campbell Bartoletti (Houghton)

My personal favorites? The Allen Say and the Kate Thompson, both concerned with the invisible line between the quotidian and fantastic, a place I like to be.
