A wonderful tribute to the Maira Kalman's mother whose closet is now a traveling art exhibit. Poignant, funny, delightful with Maira's wonderful drawings and Alex's photos. If you liked Nick Bantock's Griffin & Sabine this is a book for you. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight

After two girls go missing, their family feels the official investigation is lax. Alice Vega, a bounty hunter, is hired to explore avenues closed to the police. She teams up with a dishonorably discharged policeman and together they unravel events leading to the disappearances.

In 1948 Julia Child and her husband moved to France where they had a great time discovering the French way of life and its cuisine. The book is filled with wonderful photographs taken by Julia's husband Paul, many of which haven't been seen before. The personal stories written by Julia's great-nephew are treasures. This is a delightful look at the influences on a great chef and a portrait of another era. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Knight
