Poppy by Avi

Febe, March 1, 2009

The Poppy series was a great discovery for us. I was getting so tired of The Magic Tree House, and then we found these sweet, fun books by Avi. The characters have exciting adventures getting away from an owl, finding a new home, and the language is so rich and playful. I love reading these out loud to my daughter, and she keeps begging me to read more!

Burning Plain and Other Stories (67 Edition) by Juan Rulfo
Burning Plain and Other Stories (67 Edition)

Febe, February 23, 2009

Rulfo is one of Latin America's lesser read writers, but probably one of it's best. These stories are lyrical and deceptively simple, painting subtle pictures of life in rural Mexico. There's very little pretense in Rulfo's writing, and you'll find yourself going back again and again just to read a sentence. This collection of short stories does not let the reader romanticize Mexican life. It creates a world that endures and lingers in the imagination.
