The Furry News: How to Make a Newspaper

Loreen Leedy, Author Holiday House $17.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8234-0793-4
Budding journalists should enjoy this clever, irresistible introduction to the many particulars of newspaper writing and production. In a plot and format similar to Leedy's The Bunny Play , readers follow a group of vibrantly drawn, enterprising animals who, deciding that the city paper doesn't adequately cover their neighborhood, decide to produce a local tabloid. A surprisingly large amount of information is conveyed in this perky picture book: publishing, production, news gathering and editing, feature writing, circulation, even advertising. Of particular value is the final double-page spread, which concisely reviews the how-tos of ``making your own newspaper for your family, neighborhood or school.'' Leedy also includes a clear, helpful glossary of 21 newspaper terms, from ``article'' to ``type.'' Ages 5 -8. (Apr.)
