THE OBSTINATE PEN by Frank W. Dormer (Holt, March 2012) is a smartly funny story of a p en that refuses to write what its owner intends. Instead, it writes "Kiss her!" as a policemen is trying to write a ticket for a pretty woman. It writes insult for someone who thinks too highly of himself. Each time, the pen escapes its owner, but finally ends up in just the right hands. <497>

Robert Sabuda's exquisitely detailed paper engineering is just part of the attraction of CHANUKAH LIGHTS by Michael J. Rosen (Candlewick 2011). Eight scenes describe times of celebration of miracles not unlike that of the original fight for freedom. Here is a book to be shared to celebrate the freedom we enjoy. <498>
