The Forgotten Door (Apple Paperbacks)

ragruger1022, January 9, 2009

This book has stayed with me for years. Welcome to Little Jon's adventures after he has fallen from his world[no hate,prejuduce,envy or animal cruelty] to ours. Enough sci-fi and mystery here to capture the imagination of any child and all but the most jaded adults.

And Four to Go (Crime Line)

Four short stories that have a holiday theme except the last one.Thank yous go out to Bantam for bringing these gems back for us. They all read way to fast and you are looking for more,but that's how it is in Nero and Archies world. An excellent rainy Saturday read with the fireplace blazing.

Fer de Lance (Crime Line) by Rex Stout
Fer de Lance (Crime Line)

First, thank goodness Bantam Crime Line has begun reprinting the Nero Wolfe titles for a new generation. Fer-De-Lance is the first Nero Wolfe mystery that Rex Stout wrote and a good one it is. You don't have to worry about the order though because each story is a stand alone. Here we have murder,attempted murder, and a deadly snake. Start with this one and you will be hooked.

Stone Soup by Marcia Brown

If you have grade school children,do not let them grow up without either reading this to them or having them read it themselves. It is a jewel in a crowded,poorly written,and generally sad childrens book market. A parent won't regret this one.
