Here is the eagerly awaited second volume of Victor Klemperer's acclaimed memoir, I Will Bear Witness: A Diary of the Nazi Years, 1941-1945. A Jew married to a Christian woman, Klemperer was able to avoid deportation; although incarcerated in a forced labor camp for more than a year, he escaped during the Dresden bombing which is dramatically described. His books are certainly among the most outstanding of Holocaust literature for their meticulous observation of daily life in Hitler's Germany. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones

The classic Washington Irving tale Rip Van Winkle is warmly retold and humorously illustrated by Will Moses. In order to escape the constant scolding of his wife, the easy-going young Rip goes hunting in the Catskills with his faithful dog, Wolf. He encounters a silent crew, dressed in an antique Dutch manner, playing ninepins and drinking a potent brew. Rip joins in, and wakes up twenty years later. Will Moses's folk-style paintings are a perfect match for this story.
