Synopsis: Book by Wynne

From Booklist: Gr. 5-8. Canadian author Wynne-Jones won the 1993 Governor General's Award for Children's Literature for this collection of wonderfully wise and witty stories. All nine stories feature believably ordinary boys and girls who, cast in offbeat situations, manage to create something magical from them. Although all of the stories are well written, Wynne-Jones' wry, sly humor and insight are especially evident in several. In "Save the Moon for Kerdy Dickus," a confused, unsophisticated young man encounters a multiracial family living in a high-tech geodesic dome and comes to believe he has been abducted by aliens. A girl who stays up far too late eating pomegranates and viewing Mars to do a good job on a science project finds just the right way to explain Mars to her class in "The Night of the Pomegranate." In "Tashkent," a boy who nearly died from a mysterious illness finds a unique way to determine which exotic city he will visit first, and in "Tweedledum and Tweedledead," a wildly creative boy refuses to write a boring synopsis of his vacation, and, with the help of a friend, creates an honorable compromise. The title story features a young actress who discovers a way to live fearlessly and die well. These stories deserve a place in both public and school library collections. Chris Sherman
