I WILL ADVENTURE by Elizabeth Gray Vining

The year was 1596, and Andrew Talbot, age twelve and on his way to London to become a page, fulfilled his dearest wish—to see a play. A peacock feather and his own quick temper lead to an encounter with the players and Andrew continued his journey riding alongside Master Shakespeare.

The playwright found his company some consolation for the loss of his son Hamnet and Andrew gained a friend whose sympathetic understandings was to help him greatly in the long days in London.

For London life fell far short of his expectations. Andrew was lonely and bored, and his hilarious efforts to relieve his boredom made an enemy of Master Bingley, the steward. Andrew longed to go home to his family, to see his pet spaniel, even to squabble again with his irksome sister Cecily.

He tried to run away—and learned just how dangerous London could be for a boy on his own. It was Master Shakespeare who found Andrew the solution to his problem.

Elizabeth Janet Gray Vining tells Andrew’s story against the background of Shakespeare’s England made vividly alive by her meticulous research. She won America's Newberry medal for her Adam of the Road, another historical novel.

THE STORY OF THE PANDAVAS by Barbara Leonie Picard!
The Mahabharata, one of the two great epics of India, is a long and complicated work which was enlarged through many centuries from the simple hero sagas on which it was based, to become a poem of some hundred thousand verses. Barbara Leonie Picard has brilliantly retold the principal events of the main theme of the epic: the rivalry between the two branches of the kuru royal family. A rivalry which grew into a hatred so strong that it brought about a disastrous war.

THE CHEERFUL HEART by Elizabeth Janet Gray Vining, illustrated by Kazue Mizumura

A story of the rebuilding of lives as well as homes in bombed Tokyo, after the war was over, told through the tale of small Tomi and the Tamaki family. It is refreshing to have a modern Japanese setting, even though the picture of poverty and destruction is not a pretty one. The Tamakis, once a well-to-do family, meet the situation with very normal response — disillusionment, disappointment, but ultimately with momentary acceptance, until something better is available. And Tomi gave her gift of “a cheerful heart” even when her beloved bicycle was stolen — and at the end when the room she had longed for must be sacrificed. KIRKUS REVIEW

Catherine of Graganza by Hilda Lewis

When virginal, convent-bred Catherine of Braganza, Princess of Portugal, sailed for England in 1662 to become the bride of Charles II, she had no personal knowledge of her betrothed nor of the political circumstances that had made an alliance between her Catholic homeland and Protestant England desirable. Filled with romantic fantasies, she knew only that she wished to please the handsome man who was about to become her husband.

If her marriage brought disillusionment, it was also to bring her wisdom and satisfactions that she never dreamed of upon leaving home. Forced to accept Charles’ succession of mistresses—Lady Castlemaine, who flaunted her position for all the Court to see; young Francis Stewart; Louise de Kerouaille, the secret agent of the King of France; and finally Nell Gwynne, that darling of the English theater—Catherine endured and ultimately triumphed.

For while history has made much of Charles as a profligate and heedless ruler bent only on his own pleasures, Hilda Lewis presents a side of him that is too often overlooked. In tracing his relationship with Catherine she shows him to be a man of sensibility and insight, whose passionate nature too often overcame his good intentions. She does not attempt to minimize the pain he caused the little Portuguese princess by his infidelities, but she makes clear how, with the passage of time, Catherine came to realize she had won something more than passing physical love—her husband’s unswerving loyalty to, and dependence upon, her. Gratefully Catherine accepted his deep affection and trust, happy in the knowledge that, if he sought pleasure with other women, it was to her that he came for understanding and comfort.

The very adversities of his reign helped to bring them closer together: the Great Plague, which swept the nation, and the Great Fire, which destroyed London; the intrigue for succession to the throne; the religious conspiracies of Protestant and Catholic alike, culminating in the infamous Titus Oates plot; and the ever present threat of war Spain, the Netherlands and friends. It is these events which not only provide the background for the little-known story of the strange and moving relationship but also enable the re-creation of one of the most violent and tragic eras in English history.

BLOOMSDAY FOR MAGGIE by May McNeer, illustrated by Lynd Ward

Set in Florida during the wild, fast-living days of the 1920s prohibition and land rush, this is the story of Maggie Murphy’s baptism by fire as a newspaper reporter. Her spirited bid to write for the front pages is repeatedly thwarted by local prejudice about a woman’s place, and Maggie finds herself angrily counting the roses on bridal bouquets for the society news instead. With scandals brewing among the town’s most respectable elite, Maggie soon makes inspired use of the ladies’ page, however, and turns the town’s silk purses out for the veritable sow’s ears they are.
This story of a gallant young woman whose energy and determination overcome, among other things, her own hilarious awkwardness is written in a style, rare these days of mass communication, that preserves a true regional integrity.
May McNeer, like the fictional Maggie, grew up in the south and aspired to be a journalist. She was raised by her mother and an aunt, identical twin sisters, who were “as much part of the old south as lineage and pride together could produce” who were also “given to picking up and moving suddenly on impulse. As a result, Ms. McNeer saw much of the southeast during her early life. Eventually she enrolled in the University of Georgia and later went on to study at the school of journalism at Columbia university
May McNeer and Lynn Ward have worked together as an award winning team on a number of books for young readers — My Friend Mac, Stranger in the Pines and Up a Crooked River, among others. In 1975, they were awarded the Catholic Library Association’s Regina Medal for their continued distinguished contribution to children’s literature.
