Title
The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip
Author
George Saunders (Illustrator Lane Smith)
Review
A fable and a fairy tale, serious and funny, short but incredible in its depth. The moral, or lesson, is obvious but told so uniquely. There are colored illustrations throughout (50 or so) that takes this story "over the top". For adults, children, and all those ages in between.

Peony in Love
Author
Lisa See
Review
This book was the first book I have ever read by Lisa See. I like that it gave me a glimpse into the Chinese culture that I did not previously know. The book took many twists and turns and revealed many different traditions of the culture even in the afterword. I found it interesting that Lisa See painted a picture of society which she had done research on but did not seem to have a commentary about what she thought of said societal traditions or ways of life.
