Katharine Kenah's Family Favorite is her grandmother's grandmother's brownies. The recipe for these delicious, fudgy-rich treats has been passed down for generations. Besides these delightful easy readers about Room 75, Katharine has written The Dream Shop, Eggs Over Easy, and many exciting nonfiction books for children. She lives with her family in Granville, Ohio. Abby Carter loves to bake--especially blueberry pie, her Family Favorite. When she's not making a racket in the kitchen, she stays busy illustrating many beautiful picture books and early readers. Abby lives with her family in Connecticut.
K-Gr 2-These titles offer independent readers imaginative stories, an opportunity to build vocabulary, and memorable characters. Mildred, which is about overprotective parenting, has the thinnest plot, but the endearing illustrations encourage readers to keep turning the pages. Second Grade tells of a boy who sits next to the class hamster and the trouble that ensues when he decides to take it along on a field trip. First introduced in Big Max (HarperCollins, 1978), this title's star is a clever detective who dresses like Sherlock Holmes and travels via umbrella a la Mary Poppins. Here he takes on a case in the land of Ah-Ah Achoo. Fans of Marjorie Weinman Sharmat's "Nate the Great" series (Delacorte) will enjoy this whimsical mystery. Beginning readers will be motivated by these clever tales and pore over the imaginative illustrations.-Laurel L.

"Carter has an energetic line; her watercolor and gouache figures fairly dance off the page."--Kirkus Reviews (for MY HIPPIE GRANDMOTHER) "Wacky, off-kilter illustrations serve this humorous tale well."--School Library Journal (for SLITHERY JAKE)
