Booklist Review

Hearne speaks to the beginning professional librarian, the student of children's literature, the uncertain adult attempting to select for a specific child, and the seasoned professional desiring an update of the field. Packed with solid information, this entertaining volume is laced with sparkling humor and practical, commonsensical advice.
