That was the big family book last year -- especially good for gifted
kids and formerly gifted parents given the book's setup. TMBS is an
absolute must-read, rave, rave, rave, Ginger, rave, rave, rave.
The sequel's out (TMBS and the Perilous Journey) , but I haven't
read it -- it doesn't seem to have had the same oomph! as the first
title did, but that's not uncommon.
Also good: The Printer's Devil.
