Book Reviews

Unshelved Book Club

In this week's Unshelved Book Club you'll find books about an absurd, fantastic quest to save the world, a young boy who speaks to the "ghost" of Jacob Grimm, magical animals who protect kids from bad dreams, a girl looking for a pet, a virus spreading through a British Columbia island, a female WWII pilot imprisoned in a concentration camp, an alien cousin who comes to Earth for a visit, and a well respected climber's experiences on Everest.

P.S. These reviews come to you courtesy of this week's sponsor Books on Tape/Listening Library. Each of the sponsored selections (the ones with the light blue background) are audiobooks chosen by their crack team of audio experts. Check them out, and don't don't forget to request a copy of their Civil Rights CD sampler.
