Satoshi Kitamura's Pablo The Artist (037-4356874, $16.00) provides a fun new tale from the Hoof Lane Art Club which aspiring young artists will love. Palo dreams of having a picture in the exhibition: but nothing he paints is good enough for him to enter. Will his self-criticism keep him from doing what he loves best? A fine story of painting and self-confidence evolves. Emily Arnold McCully's Marvelous Mattie: How Margaret E. Knight Became An Inventor (0374348103, $16.00) is based on the true story of a female inventor around the turn of the century, but reads like fiction and thus is featured here. Mattie loves to make things at an early age and loves to invent whenever a challenge comes up--but she lives during a time when women are believed to be unable to understand mechanical concepts. Her battle for recognition brought her all the way to the patent office and makes for a lively story of one girl's determination to succeed against all gender odds.
