I wish I could enlarge the cover illustration of A Mountain of Friends by Germany's Kerstin Schoene even more than I already have so that readers might appreciate the scale at which this small penguin, eyes crinkled with pleasure, can produce such a heartwarming and fully embracing hug of appreciation for his friends. Without going into song, I can really feel the overwhelming love extended from his heart to his wingtips.
Courtesy of Canadian author Natalie Hyde 's loving translation, readers of all ages will feel for this little guy who is heartbroken that he cannot fly. After all, he is a bird, right? And birds fly, right? August 21, Whatever.
September Could any single non-profanity hold as much antipathy as the teen dismissal of, " Whatever"? It's used frequently by sixteen-year-old Darrah Patrick whenever she feels an answer is expected but honesty will not be appreciated. With her brother, not yet 10, diagnosed in the past year with epilepsy, Darrah feels neglected by her parents whose every worry revolves around Andrew. So, when her mother insists on taking Andrew to the hospital after he has a seizure, rather than taking Darrah to her final audition for a community theatre production, Darrah is not pleased.
In fact, she pulls the fire alarm at the hospital as her only chance to escape and recapture that opportunity. Although she tosses off the seriousness of the situation with her "whatever", Darrah is in danger of being charged with setting a false alarm during which an elderly woman, Mrs. Johnson, is injured. Even when Darrah is given the option of participating in the Restorative Justice program, rather than going to court, she's not too concerned. Her biggest concern is getting everything resolved before Halloween so she can attend a party! Johnson while she heals, even though the elderly woman denies that Darrah caused her injuries when the teen raced down the stairs.
Johnson reminds Darrah of her very proper grandmother, now passed. She has knitted slippers at the door for her guests, enjoys her garden, cooking and baking, and keeping up on the news.

The teen does as she's asked—reads the newspaper, bakes biscuits, prepares tea, washes dishes—and though she believes Mrs. J is opinionated, Darrah finds herself learning much from the elderly woman. Happily, Darrah is learning to cook, something her fast-food-fed family appreciates immensely, while also making the acquaintance of Mrs. Johnson's grandson, Robin, Perhaps most surprising is Darrah's growing maturity "whatever" is heard less often and compassion regarding her brother's epilepsy.
With the focus turning from herself to those around her, she begins to see evidence that Mrs. Johnson is going blind, although she promises to keep her condition a secret.
But, secrets become the premise upon which Whatever 's plot both expands and wraps up. Todd R.
