Isla Checked Out The Bean Trees

That old Barbara Kingslover chesnut. Plus a copy of The Lone Ranger & Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, by Sherman Alexie, and a copy of My Side of the Mountain, by Jean Craighead George. A review on says that the latter book is about a boy named Sam Gribley who runs away to the Catskills Mountains and lives in a hollowed-out tree with a falcon and a weasel for company. Isla also donated $5 toward more books for the Street Books library, and gave us some great suggestions for titles to offer. I'll post her list with the Requests. 20110625-075706.jpg
