Mailbox Monday (5)
Posted by Laura at Library of Clean Reads on November 15, 2009 in Mailbox Monday | Comments : 9
Although I have an obsession about checking my mailbox ever time I leave the house to walk with my kids to school (in the mornings, at lunch and at the end of the school day) I was actually glad I only received two books this past week, since my last mailbox Monday was a full one. So what did I get?
The Green Bronze Mirror by Lynne Ellison
Publisher's Synopsis: Karen is playing on the beach when she finds an ancient mirror buried in the sand. She looks into it, and is transported back in time to the Roman empire. Finding herself a slave, she faces many hair-raising adventures in her struggle to return to her own time.
This long-lost work of young adult Roman fantasy/ historical fiction in the great tradition of Rosemary Sutcliff, first published in 1966 and since out of print, has been reprinted in a new paperback edition with brand-new illustrations by Philip Smiley. The book is now available from Cnposner Books.
So what did you receive in your mailbox?
