MARVEN OF THE GREAT NORTH WOODS

Kathryn Lasky, Author, Kevin Hawkes, Illustrator , illus. by Kevin Hawkes. Harcourt/Voyager $7 (48p) ISBN 978-0-15-216826-1

During a 1918 winter flu epidemic, a 10-year-old is dispatched from home to a logging camp where he will be safe. "Thanks to Lasky's considerable command of language and narrative detail, readers will linger over descriptions of Marven's solo journey," wrote PW, calling the illustrations "warm and glowing." Ages 6-9. (Oct.)
