TOON THURSDAY: New and Probably Not Improved!

Catching Up: Book Blurbs of Fall/Winter, Pt. 1
I've gotten incredibly far behind on my reviewing, so it's that time again: time to cut to the chase and offer quick, no-nonsense book reviews before I completely forget everything about these stories. This past fall was a real bear as far as staying caught...

Cybils Finalist Review: STRANGE FRUIT, VOLUME I by Joel Christian Gill
Summary : In a recent NPR interview , Joel Christian Gill said, "These stories are quintessentially American stories. I can't say that enough. It's not that I dislike Black History Month. I just don't think Black History Month is enough." I agree completely...
