The Philharmonic Gets Dressed by Karla Kuskin
5.0 out of 5 stars Friday night fun., July 12 2004
This is a terrific book for adults and children that follows the ritual of a number of people who are getting ready in different ways to do one thing together. To make music.
I love the quiet humour and the little details in the illustrations.
I had a copy of the book as a child and loved to look over it and observe something so different from my own experiences of being a second grader in a small town.
The book just radiated glamour to me and still does.
This book is equally sophisticated and sweet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfection within pages., June 27 2004
This is a grand collection of stories that show Wodehouse at his prime. I think the appeal of this particular book is how well paced the stories are you find yourself almost racing through them because of the rapid fire wit and satire that Wodehouse throws out to the reader almost like as if one is playing tennis with the author.
This is the perfect book for the bath, commuting on buses/trains/planes or waiting for an appointment. It can be easily picked up or set down as time allows.
I kept a copy in my handbag for about two months and it was so relaxing to fall into the hysterical world of Bertie and his gentleman's gentleman.
Dream of the Circle of Women by Dahti Blanchard
Dream of the Circle of Women by Dahti Blanchard
My first reaction after reading this book was that this is for the person looking for something beyond the typical book club books. It is a book that is appealing to so many people in such a diverse way. It is a story for someone with pagan interests. It is a story that has elements for a person who may have had a difficult relationship with a parent. It is a story for someone who enjoys the journey of understanding the past.
It is an enjoyable debut novel that is appropriate for a book discussion group, a vacation read or a rainy weekend.
