We all crept through the branches of the linden as quietly as we could. Karl had brought his flashlight, and he flashed it on Olaf's bed. There he lay, fast asleep, with the black thread trailing out of his mouth. Oh, I got scared! What if it should hurt alot, and Olaf started to cry! What would he say when he saw all of us standing there? Karl took a firm grip on the thread and whispered, "One, two, three, pull!" Three Swedish farmhouses in a row make for one Noisy Village: noisy, because Lisa and her brothers Karl and Bill are at the center, with their neighbors Anna and Britta on one side, and Olaf and Kerstinon the other. Close in age as they are (except baby Kerstein, who holds her own), what else could you expect but unceasing merriment and motion? Lisa relates their fun with shrewd sense and a perfect ear for boys' and girls' banter. Of necessity she records some quiet moments in Noisy Village, like the time they crept into Olaf's room to help him out by pulling his tooth while he slept-to save him from a stomach-ache! A great read-aloud book for the family and a happy choice for younger readers. Ages 4 and up.

After Hiarandi is unjustly slain, his sixteen-year-old son Rolf is made outlaw by the same murderous neighbors. Rolf flees Iceland with his faithful cousin Frodi, only to be enslaved in the Orkneys by proud Grani. However, when the marauding baresarks arrive, master and slave alike must fight for their lives-and Rolf is the only man who can string the mighty Viking bow. Allen French's tale of Iceland told in the classic saga form, is an exciting story of Christian versus pagan values, forgiveness versus pride. The way Rolf comes to terms with his enemies in the face of injustice creates a suspenseful, thought-provoking book dificult to put down. By the author of "The Red Keep". Ages 10 and up.

Seventeen-year-old Paula has just left behind convent boarding school - to go home. She hasn't been back home for more than two years, and isn't quite prepared for her five rambunctious brothers, two eccentric maiden aunts, bibliophile uncle, and 89 year-old Babbett, not to mention the demands laid on her by energetic Mama. Her father, Judge Eisenberth, at first seems to be the only one who understands her frustration. Even Adolf, her favorite brother, cannot fathom why she longs to go back to the convent and become a nun.

Paula - and Adolf, who is going through his own trials - must face their problems and learn how to deal with everyday dilemmas as a part of the growing-up process. Set in 19th century Germany, this book is not only excellent as a "coming-of-age" story, but sheds a fascinating light on the everyday life and customs of the Rhineland. Paperback.

Donkeys by the hundreds! Twelve-year-old Chico Filippo, whose own donkeys were confiscated years before by the German army, can't stay away from the newly set up American Remount Depot. Here, in the last months of World War II in Italy, thousands of supply mules and donkeys are processed and sent onto the fierce mountain fighting in the Apennines. One of the handlers introduces Chico to a small courageous animal the boy names Sergeant Donkey. Drawn into friendship and then into unexpected danger, Chico must demonstrate his own simple courage. More than an animal or war story, this short book has a depth of truth about people of different ages and nationalities who still share a common love of the land and of human dignity.

Ages 9 and up.
