THE NEW YORK TIMES IS FALLING FOR HAMLET!

After Talking to Teachers last Wednesday, I hope I’m not talking out of turn. But, I want everyone to know about the terrific review of the debut novel of our fellow-EMU Michelle Ray in the Children’s Book section of The New York Times’ Aug. 21, 2011 Book Review.

For starters: “beguiling,” “artful,” inventive,” “brazen,” “much for modern girls to love,” “riveting.” For the fabulous conclusion (and for reviews of other wonderful children’s books and an excellent essay on literature for boys), see  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/21/books/review/shakespeare-and-austen-updated.html?_r=1&ref=books

Congratulations,  Michelle!

  4. Something more to add to the Dayenu list… that the NY Times even mentions your book would be enough. To call it “beguiling” and “inventive”? A dream come true! Congratulations, Michelle, and may the accolades continue to pour in!
