Good idea to have a separate thread. Perhaps the cover art will ring some bells:



Publisher's page for Bankston book



Publisher's page for Griskey book



Amazon page for Mass book

Here is another, for ages 11 and up, by an author with an unfortunate last name. Only two letters different and he would be a British word for a total idiot.

Personal name: Piddock, Charles.
Main title: Ray Bradbury : legendary fantasy writer / by Charles Piddock.
Published/Created: Pleasantville, NY : Gareth Stevens Pub., 2009.
Description: 111 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 24 cm.
ISBN: 9781433900594 (lib. bdg.)
1433900599 (lib. bdg.)
Links: Table of contents only
CALL NUMBER: PS3503.R167 Z84 2009
Copy 1
-- Request in: Jefferson or Adams Building Reading Rooms



I have the Wendy Mass book and ordered the other two today when I saw prices on Amazon.com had dropped dramatically. The Piddock book is still too high for me to justify right now. I will let you all know my opinions when I have them.

That cover is familiar. I must have seen it before but confused it with the other three.

That kind of sucks that the last author's name was Charles and not Peter, because the others were Wendy, John, and Michele, which is the feminine of Michael, and if he'd been named Peter it would have been all of the main characters of Peter Pan!

Perhaps board member Tinkerbell could also write one...
