The Best Town in the World

Byrd Baylor. Aladdin Paperbacks, $5.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-689-71086-5

An ode to a Southwestern town, where Baylor's father grew up, where the wildflowers were prettier than those found elsewhere and the chickens laid exceptional eggs. ""Everything in that town was a marvel and so is this creation by two sensitive artists. Captivated by Himler's radiant watercolors and Baylor's singing text, anyone will agree that the town in this ballad earns its reputation,'' said PW. (All ages)
