"The author of Great Books for Girls again draws on her experience as a librarian. Like the companion volume, her new roundup includes picture books as well as books for middle graders and older readers, approximately to age 14. Odean's annotations are, as before, a clearly written combination of content and commentary, with basic imprint information (though no ISBNs) and suggested age level provided for each book. She has retained some titles from the previous book, but many are different. The organization is also slightly different here, and the table of contents has been expanded for easier use."--Booklist.
