Read a Children's Book!

In looking for a book I recalled from childhood (my only clue was it had something to do with a potato**), I stumbled across The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin. A blurb on the cover cited this book as one of School Library Journal's One Hundred Books that Shaped the Century. (That would be the last century, of course.) Full of familiar titles, the list is like the proverbial walk down memory lane. A display of many of these titles can be found in the adult section of the library in celebration of Children's Book Week - November 12 - 19.

**The Tatooed Potato also by Ellen Raskin
