Julia Rothman has an extensive collection of hard to find books and zines which she reviews on 'Book by its Cover'. In the last issue of Small she picked some of her favorite zines and books for kids. We loved all her picks but we especially loved Dallas Claytons 'An Awesome Book.' Dallas Clayton published his book him self and it sold out immediately. It is now in its second run and the whole book is available to look at or buy on his website. Many people cry - in a good way- when they read it the first time and we can understand why...it is very touching, and gently reminds you there are much more important things in life than owning matching silverware or a new car. ..especially one that doesn't run on jellybeans!
