Nancy Pearl brings a book she says is going to be the book all the Harry Potter fans will flock to.
"The Iremonger Trilogy, written and illustrated by Edward Carey. "Heap House" is the first of the trilogy. Nancy says that ever since the Harry Potter books, she has been looking for the next book that will appeal to Potter fans with a story that is new and fresh. Here it is. Carey is telling a tale not of good versus evil, but of humans doing what they do to our little world.
Also, "Battle Lines: A Graphic History of the Civil War," by Ari Kelman gives a reader a different way to look at a history that is still in dispute in this country. She says it also gives her a renewed respect for the power of the graphic book.
