new issue of Notes from the Windowsill

The latest issue of Notes from the Windowsill is now available. It includes my final (for the moment) thoughts on So Yesterday, a number of reprints and some reviews previewed in this blog. The cover title will be (as soon as Evan gets around to it) Mary Poppins from A to Z, a book which was very fun to read and even more fun to write about:

Mary Poppins from A to Z by P.L. Travers. Illustrated by Mary
Shepard. 1962; Harcourt, 2006 (0-15-205834-6) $14.00

Available once again, only now Beautifully Colored, this Delectable book features Every one of the Favorite characters from Travers' Greatly loved Mary Poppins series. How fun It is to read about their Jolly adventures, from the Kindly Bird Woman to the Lovely Mary Poppins herself. No One should Pass up this Quirky, Really quite funny Story, Told in twenty-six Unusual Vignettes. What a good idea it was to eXpose it to Young (and old) readers once again. Zounds but I enjoyed it! (4-8)
