The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books:
The Bulletin Dozen

The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer.

New This March: Forgotten Fantasy Favorites

My role this month is to act as a sort of fairy tale dwarf, a miner of gems that sit forgotten on library shelves. This is a peculiarly arbitrary list as the titles included are here because I remember them with great fondness as "transportation books"- books that transport the reader out of the present and into other worlds more romantic, exciting, and sometimes dangerous. Published at least fifteen years ago, these titles are old enough to need an introduction to a new generation. Grab a torch and go mine your shelves- you'll be surprised at the treasures you'll find there.
