What People are Saying

 

I thought I read a lot of books, but Ann McKinstry Micou has me beat! I also thought I knew most of the books about Vermont, but I was wrong. Reading Ann’s book has sent me on a treasure hunt, tracking down wonderful reads that I didn’t know even existed. I think it will do the same for you.

– Natalie Kinsey-Warnock, author of As Long as There Are Mountains, The Canada Geese Quilt, and From Dawn to Dusk

   

More than a bibliography or an overview, this valuable resource is an in-depth look at the entire range and history of children’s fiction set in Vermont — its subjects, its themes, its honest (and usually positive) picture of our state. And those wonderful appendixes, especially the list of authors and the chronology, its numbers skyrocketing as the years progress! They’re worth the price of the book.

– Joanna Rudge Long, reviewer for The Horn Book Magazine and former young people’s book review editor for Kirkus Reviews

   

From the author’s insightful introduction to the succinct and engaging thumbnail descriptions of the books themselves, this volume is not only a valuable resource, it’s a fascination all by itself.

– David Budbill, author of While We’ve Still Got Feet and Judevine
