Country Far Away

Nigel Gray. Scholastic, $6.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-531-07024-6

The lives of an African and an American boy are simultaneously explored; PW said, ``Dupasquier's lively style uses the conventions of the comic strip . . . but achieves true characterization and depth of story. Unique among picture books, it avoids didacticism while joyfully celebrating the kinship of human cultures.'' Ages 3-6. (Aug.)
