Nostalgia Ain’t What It Used To Be

Thanks to Maude Newton, I came across Fine Lines, a Friday feature “… in which we give a sentimental, sometimes-critical, far more wrinkled look at the children’s and YA books we loved in our youth.”

So far they’ve done:

All-Of-A-Kind Family: Where I Would Put Something Yiddish If I Thought You Goyishe Farshtinkiners Would Farshtey

Island Of The Blue Dolphins: I’m a Cormorant And I Don’t Care.

Little House In The Big Woods: “I Play With A Pig Bladder Like It’s A Balloon”

‘The Grounding Of Group 6’: Have Fun At School And Don’t Forget To Die

Are You There, Crazy Psychic Muse? It’s Me, Lois Duncan

  1. Smirking and smiling as I read these pieces. I adore All-of-a-Kind Family and the Duncan books.
