More love from The Washington Post

>> Wednesday, December 13, 2006

That venerable bastion of journalism The Washington Post, home of Woodward and Bernstein (or Kornheiser and Wilbon, if you prefer) has just named Samurai Shortstop one of its 2006 Top Ten Novels for Children! Here's what reviewer Elizabeth Ward had to say:

Samurai Shortstop, by Alan Gratz (Dial, $15.99; ages 12-up). In an elite Tokyo boarding school at the turn of the 20th century, a samurai's son tries to square his father's warrior code with the brash new game of "beseboru." Sad, bloody, but funny, too.

Thanks Elizabeth, and thanks Washington Post! I think I need to get a subscription.
