Blueberries for All!

As Katie found out from PW this weekend, the dispute over Blueberries for Sal has been settled, and this gorgeous classic is already back in, in all its delicious white and blue glory. You can find Sal and the little bear snacking away on berries on our features table or shelved with McCloskey's other classic New England picture books, including Make Way for Ducklings, Time of Wonder, and Lentil. Hooray!

Another long-awaited berry bonanza has also arrived: Neil Gaiman's newest picture book, Blueberry Girl, illustrated by Charles Vess. Well I remember Katie's anticipation for this title as far back as I'll leave any commentary to her, but suffice it to say, it is really lovely, and truly shows the scope of Gaiman's writing.
