“When Pop left to be a soldier, I wanted to go with him. ‘I’m brave,’ I told Pop.
‘I know, Mikey,’ he said, patting my shoulder. ‘And you’ll need to be,
’cause it takes just as much courage to stay behind.'”

Last week at Kirkus, I wrote about Deborah Hopkinson’s Knit Your Bit: A World War I Story (Putnam, February 2013), illustrated by Steven Guarnaccia. That link is here. Up above, I’ve got one full spread from the book — for those of you who want to take a brief peek inside.

This morning at Kirkus, I have a handful of reasons I think Hilary McKay’s Lulu chapter book series, imported from the UK, is worth checking out.

And that link is here.

Enjoy, and see you on Sunday.

  1. It’s so nice to get a WWI story for once. And a knitting boy: win!
