The Billy and Blaze books were some of my favorites from when I was young. This is the first time I’ve read one for probably close to twenty-five years, and I have to say it held up beautifully. The language is simplistic without being condescending. ...more

An undeniably fun read. Any fan of Cosby’s will appreciate seeing characters like Fat Albert at an early stage of development. Ultimately, a pleasant mixture of Doc Cosby’s own stories from his life and observation about the changes since then and th ...more

I’ve been meaning to read this one for a while. It is fascinating to see how all of the fairy tales which we have grown up with in a sanitized Disnified form, originally came to take their shape. The tales are in as enjoyable a form as any cheerful a ...more

This novel, which functions both within and as a running lampoon of contemporary life, is a delightful read. No parsing of language, no labels that the characters apply to themselves, no amount of analysis about the meaning or meaninglessness of exis ...more

My own prejudice would come to the fore here (I am a huge fan of Shel Silverstein and every form of his works be they children’s books, oddball country and folk songs, or his Playboy work) except for the fact that this collection is a gem by any stan ...more
