Holiday Reads, 1

I finished several books over the holiday break. My reviews are over on Revish; follow the links below.

The first is The Adventures of Long Tail by Nan Schroeder.This is a juvi story about a family of cats. It is a pretty good story and the first I've read for young people that gives us a bit of "nature, red in tooth and claw." Beatrix Potter it isn't.

The next is John Halsted's first b ook, Legend of the Last Vikings: Taklamakan. It is a cracking good story set at the end of the Viking era. Viking comrades go A-Viking one last time.
