It's been so long since Blueberries for Sal was available that I'd just about given up hope of ever seeing it in print again, despite the fact that it's my (and many customers') favorite McCloskey. Thank goodness we don't have to worry about that; PW reports that the beloved blue-and-white picture book will be reprinted and back on shelves by the end of May.

PW adds that Pack, one of the Make Way for Ducklings statues in the Boston Common which was stolen a week ago, is now back at home with Jack, Lack, Mack, Quack, and all his other siblings. Good thing, too -- I don't know if the world of children's books could handle more long-term McCloskey loss after a year without Blueberries for Sal.
