Norman's Best Books of 2009: A Fiction Roundup

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, everyone! And happy 2010, too.

I hope your holidays are filled with books and reading. One present in Junior's stocking tomorrow morning is going to be Brian Floca's Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11. If Santa gets her his act together and stops eating Zapp's barbecue potato chips and catching up on hometown news with his mom, Junior may also find Theodore Gray's book The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe under the tree. It's for grown-ups, but I think there's enough there for children interested in science. With a little help, Junior picked out Julia Child's My Life in France for his grandma.

Here, via the Guardian and my new pals at EA300 Children's literature: a tutor's blog, is a slide show from Walker Books of new illustrations of some children's classics.

Merry Christmas, Susan!!

Merry Christmas, Susan! I know that Grandma is going to LOVE her book - St. Julia is still a hoot.

Merry Merry to you and yours!

Thanks, Jen. I hope you have a good one, too. Are you in the snowy northeast for the holiday?

Tanita, yes. St. Julia! We hope to watch the Julie & Julia movie on DVD this weekend, too. Have a terrific holiday.

Susan, Oh, I loved Julie and Julia! I hope you all are having a lovely holiday weekend!

Happiest of Holidays and the shiniest of new years to you!

Adrienne, well, some Ernest at Christmas won out over Julie & Julia. Soon, though!

Thank you, Edi, and a very happy new year to you!
