2013 Awards
( By David Macaulay, Houghton Mifflin $19.99 Score: )

Though fond memories of the original black and white illustrations linger, David Macaulay's revised text with full color illustrations will have a new life with another generation of readers. Reborn with digital drawings drawn with felt-tip markers and colored pencils, Macaulay's work remains a visual feast. Castle, originally published in 1977 brings us once again to Lord Kevin's fictional castle and retraces its planning and construction. If you are lucky enough to have the originals, they are treasures to keep.  For new history and architecture buffs, this and his revised Cathedral are special gifts for 10 and up.
