Summary: In a West Virginia forest in 1963, a group of children at summer camp enter a foreboding Eden and experience an unexpected rite of passage. Shelter is an astonishing portrayal of an American loss of innocence as witnessed by a mysterious drifter named Parson, two young sisters, Lenny and Alma, and a feral boy called Buddy. Together they come to understand bravery and the importance of compassion. Phillips unearths a dangerous beauty in this primeval terrain and in the hearts of her characters. Lies, secrets, erotic initiations, and the bonds of love between friends, families, and generations are transformed in a leafy wilderness undiminished by societal rules and dilemmas. Cast in Phillips' stunning prose, with an unpredictable cast of characters and a shadowy, suspenseful narrative, Shelter is a an enduring achievement from one of the finest writers of our time.

Inhaltsangabe: For his birthday Maxwell Monster receives a kit for dressing up like a monster and scares everyone in sight, including himself.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-- On his birthday, Maxwell receives the gift he has always wanted--a ``Monster Fun Kit''--complete with `` `fearsome mask, hideous claws, dastardly feet, plus lots of dangling eyeballs.' '' He spends the rest of his day scaring his family and friends. Catching a glimpse of himself in the mirror, he faints from shock at the sight. All ends happily as Mother Monster comes to his rescue and announces that she likes him best as plain Maxwell. The lively pen-and-watercolor illustrations reinforce the humor of the text and depict the outlandishness of the costume. Combining monsters, humor, and a birthday theme, Maxwell's Birthday will be a hit for both individual reading and story hours. --Cheryl Cufari, N.A. Walbran Elementary School, Oriskany, NY-
