With any luck, best friends won't end up as entries in My Book of Mean People Journal by Toni and Slade Morrison, illus. by Pascal Lema tre. The compact, spiral-bound offering serves as a companion to The Book of Mean People (Children's Forecasts, Sept. 9) and provides a place for children to draw and write about their thoughts and experiences. Questions (""Sometimes people don't intend to be mean. They're mean because they're really feeling something else. What do you think they're feeling?"") encourage reflection.
