  1. Wow, a very promising batch of upcoming starred reviews there! I have always loved the work of E.B. Lewis, especially his collaborations with Jacqueline Woodson, and I can’t wait to see Ms. Blackall’s follow-up to her magnificent THE MIGHTY LALOUCHE. I certainly will investigate the others! Best wishes in your new home.
