Kid's Lit Dept: The Blueberry Bandit by Melissa Jones

If you have kids, do yourself a favor and check out The Blueberry Bandit. This beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated new book by Melissa Jones (yes, she just happens to be my niece), tells the story of a newcomer to the town of Jallonsville, who has a penchant for a certain blue fruit. It's available through, in paperback (click on the picture link). This is Melissa Jones's debut in children's literature.
