Jane Yolen. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), $7 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-15-201389-9

PW's starred review described this ""stirring"" book as a look at the dark underside of Christopher Columbus's adventure. ""The message is blunt but the language in which it is couched is vintage Yolen, lyrical and impassioned. Shannon's visionary style is an ideal complement."" Also available in a Spanish-language edition, Encuentro ($6, -201342-3). Ages 6-12. (Sept.)
