School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-9-A clever, gossipy, idea-packed volume for would-be journalists. The now-popular mosaic-style layout lends itself to discussions of how newspapers are put together, anecdotes about their history, clarifications of terms, and how-to projects. Sections include news stories, editorials, comics, advertising, production, and delivery. Commendably, a recycling section presents numerous ecological suggestions. Although not as extensive as Ruth Crisman's Hot Off the Press (Lerner, 1990), this book is decidedly more fun. Slavin's imaginative ink drawings abound, giving the overall appearance of a book that's anxious to be explored. Here's hoping it is.-Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, RI
