    Winner of the Man Booker Prize and National Books Critics Circle Award in 2009, the novel Wolf Hall is large in every sense of the word. Hilary Mantel tells the familiar story of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn with a fresh perspective: through the eyes of the much-maligned Thomas Cromwell, a common man who rose to become the adviser to the king. Cromwell is practical and strategic; he is loyal to those he serves, and to those who serve him. He is also intelligent, observant, and calculating, and possessed of a quick, dry sense of humor. Readers gain a unique perspective on life in London and at court in the 1520s-1530s (the book ends in 1535, but a sequel is in the works). This is an excellent read for those already somewhat familiar with this era, and those willing to adjust to Mantel’s grammatical style (nearly every “he,” “him,” or “his” refers to Cromwell).

    Seleh Morse witnesses a young woman get hit by a car, and he brings her to the hospital. When she wakes with no idea who she is, all memories stolen by the accident, he poses as her boyfriend and takes her home. The doctors instruct him to keep her awake overnight, and he fills the night--and her blank memory--with invented stories of who she was in the hopes she'll recognize herself. Like a long dream in which every piece is connected and makes perfect sense, The Way Through Doors is fleeting and ephemeral, yet not forgettable in the slightest.

    Jacob's grandfather told wild stories about the orphanage he'd been in as a child, a home where the children were invisible, or could conjure fire, or fly. In his dying breath, he urges Jacob to "find the bird. In the loop. Tell them what happened, Yakob." Jacob travels to Wales to find the orphanage that was bombed in 1940 and yet somehow still exists, and bring a message to the headmistress who died in the bombing but is very much alive.

    December was a fun month in the Children’s Room.  We had lots of great activities. 

    The Magic of Science came to the library.  The kids loved participating in the amazing demonstrations.

    The smell of sugar filled the second floor while the kids built gingerbread house with graham crackers, frosting and LOTS of candy.

    Food smells also filled the air during “New Year’s Snackin Eve”.  Kids made fruit kebabs, roll-ups, “hamburger cookies”, and snack mix, followed by a countdown and a toast with a glass of sparkling apple juice.


    Here’s to a great 2012  in the Children’s Room!

    Those who loved The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger’s first novel, should be prepared for a different type of story. Rather than two central characters, there are several: twin sisters Edie and Elspeth Noblin; Edie’s husband Jack and their twin daughters, Julia and Valentina Poole; and the other tenants in Elspeth’s apartment building in London – Martin, who suffers from OCD, and Robert, Elspeth’s bereaved lover (the book begins with Elspeth’s death). Under the terms of Elspeth’s will, Julia and Valentina move from Chicago to Elspeth’s flat in London, bordering Highgate Cemetery. Elspeth, now a ghost, learns to communicate with them and with Robert. But Elspeth and Edie have been keeping a secret from everyone for over twenty years, and only a terribly tragic event can bring it to light. Her Fearful Symmetry is, essentially, a ghost story, where neither the living nor the dead can let the other rest.
