" The Shadow Children

""Schnur's novel is poignant and haunting. Etienne's direct, first-person narrative draws readers into his world, one of pleasure and puzzlement, action and reflection. The fantasy elements are smoothly integrated into the story, and add a unique slant to a frequently covered topic. A thought-provoking addition to the World War II literature.""-School Library Journal

Beyond Providence

""To a cast of passionate, fully realized characters, Schnur adds a compelling sense of place and time and several surprising subplots. With lyrical prose and metaphorical imagery, it's a novel that grows on readers with each turn of the page.""-Kirkus Reviews

The Koufax Dilemma

""Danny's usually warm relationship with his mother and coach, and his mixed feelings for his mother's boyfriend and his dad's new family are portrayed in a believable way. His struggles with faith, family, and team loyalty make this novel an appealing account of family caring and compromise, as well as a satisfying sports story.""-Children's Literature

Winter: An Alphabet Acrostic

""Schnur and Evans round out the year, producing another visually and verbally entrancing title following Autumn, Spring, and Summer. Evans makes hand-colored linoleum blocks whose strong and supple graphic line sets off her rich colors. Schnur's deceptively simple acrostics trace the alphabet and the season. With this latest entry Schnur and Evans complete a most satisfying quartet that can be read with pleasure the whole year round.""-Kirkus Reviews"
