Stand Up and Whistle is an intelligently written work that young readers will certainly enjoy. It powerfully combines social protest, environmentalism, and some very effective education on ecosystems—especially as it pertains to the often-overlooked role of more modest creatures like prairie dogs.
Introducing the concept of death to children is obviously difficult. Rebecca Elliott (The Owl Diaries) approaches this potential minefield-of-a-subject with a novel combination of tenderness and candor in Missing Jack.
