Submitter: I have a really liberal collection development philosophy, especially for a public high school, but this book just couldn’t stay. Really? The people who designed the spine thought writing it Bang The Grey lady and the Strawberry Snatch(er) was a good idea? Caldecott Honor or not this book is awful and has never been checked out, even by immature high school boys.
Holly: This is cataloged as juvenile fiction, which seems odd given it’s WorldCat description: “In this story without words, an old woman is pursued by a strange man with a passion for strawberries.” I don’t know what year the library acquired it, but if it has never been checked out it has to go. That is an unfortunate format of the spine, isn’t it?? (See first image below.)
