Between the Bridge and the River by Craig Ferguson
Between the Bridge and the River

Cathryn, January 3, 2012

Who knew that a Scottish talk show host/comedian could write a novel so amazing? "Between the Bridge and the River" intertwines the stories of several different characters, creating a tale that is altogether heartwarming, sad, disgusting, tender and hilarious. I highly recommend it and will read it again. I sincerely hope he writes more.

In the Night Kitchen (Caldecott Collection) by Maurice Sendak
In the Night Kitchen (Caldecott Collection)

Cathryn, August 28, 2010

My daughter is 29 now, but when she was little we must have read this book together a hundred times. She loved it so much. It is my favorite of all Maurice Sendak's stories. It's short and imaginative and we could both picture ourselves in the Night Kitchen with Mickey. What great fun we had with this story!
