The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
The Elegance of the Hedgehog

Mary Edwards, January 1, 2012

I've read some fine books this past year, but The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery ranks at the top for Barbery's timeless commentary on life, books, grammar (as an editor I couldn't help but laugh out loud at her take on poor punctuation) and, of course, relationships of all strip. When a book calls to you for a re-read, you know it's superior.

Dogzilla by Dav Pilkey
Dogzilla

Mary Edwards, November 17, 2010

My favorite kid's book of all time. I could -- and did -- read this book a hundred times over. Every new parent friend gets Dogzilla and the nearly equally funny Kat Kong because we parents deserve some entertainment at storytime too.

The Final Solution: A Story of Detection (P.S.) by Michael Chabon
The Final Solution: A Story of Detection (P.S.)

Mary Edwards, March 11, 2010

My first Michael Chabon book and I loved it -- from the lengthy, richly detailed sentences to the deft characterizations. And being a Sherlock Holmes fan, I loved the what-if aspect of the esteemed detective's much later years. I'm moving on to The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and pushing this one on the friends and book groupies who want something short, but sweet.
