The Bloomsbury Review

My Travels with Clara
Mary Tavener Holmes
Illustrated by Jon Cannell

"This charming picture book captures the childhood feeling of awe during that maiden voyage to the zoo and the realization that there are creatures larger than we are. . . . This brief journey back in time brings a present-day immediacy to the feeling of wonder that animals inspire in us all."

My Travels with Clara
Strong Stuff:
Herakles and His Labors
John Harris
Illustrated by Gary Baseman

"Exuberant volume. . . full of wonderful, irreverent painted illustrations. . . . This is a very clear, funny and thorough telling of Herakles labours, greatly aided by the bright and wacky creatures conjured up by [Baseman]. . . . A good read and wonderful introduction to this story for the young and for those of us who mourn the day when we outgrew illustrated books."
Journal of Classics Teaching

"This simplified version of the 12 labors of Hercules (Herakles as the Greeks called him) will delight young children. . . a fun look at an ancient hero."
School Library Journal

"This fresh, funny rendition definitely blows the dust off the old tales, while staying surprisingly close to traditional versions."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

List price $16.95, discount price $10.17
