    I don't know how to give this a star review. I did find it interesting, and helpful for working at the library, but it's obviously a bit out of date, and there are a few big omissions (Hatchet should be there, even if Paulsen isn't Canadian; Charles de Lint as one brief, not very favorable mention)....
