Children's Book Reviews - 12/8/2008 - Publishers Weekly.

This small-format, gifty offering from an acclaimed author is not necessarily a children's book; the story it tells, in prose, will absorb adult admirers of literary craftsmanship as thoroughly as it does children.

WB's Whitefoot: A Story from the Center of the World has received a starred review at Publisher's Weekly. My copy arrived a little while ago, but I haven't been able to dive in yet ... though I have looked at the good pictures by Davis Te Selle. The pathos of the one on page 26 reminds me of Lillian Gish's thought in the great Night of the Hunter: "
It's a hard world for little things."
