Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming Up This Week

signs of spring picAs we change the calendars, we note that Spring is scheduled to arrive officially later this month. Some of the Foxes view this with skepticism seeing noting but piles of snow outside of their windows or shaking cold rain from their coats. But some Foxes are seeing catkins on willow trees and flowers peeking through the mud of their gardens, so it depends on where one is lucky enough to live. In any case, it’s not quite beach weather, so there is plenty of time to curl up with a good book and we have a variety of suggestions.

Monday- Jackie looks at the annual contest for child wordsmiths in American Bee by James Maguire.

Wednesday- Hilary takes a look at some more or less hilarious comic guides to Shakespeare, starting with a paean of praise for the one and only Peace, Good Ticklebrain.

Thursday- Kirsty D enthuses about The Good Mother Myth: Redefining Motherhood to Fit Reality.

Friday- RosyB presents a guest piece on the age banding debate regarding childrens books.
