Synopses & Reviews
This authoritative single-volume encyclopedia helps children and young adults understand the characters, plots, and allusions in the books they read. For librarians, parents, and teachers, it performs double duty as an in-depth selection tool. The Young Reader's Companion contains more than 2,000 entries, arranged alphabetically for easy access. Each is approximately 200 words long, and designates the appropriate reading level--either Middle Reader or young Adult.
