New York Times on Laura Schlitz: A "Master of Children’s Literature"

From Monica Edinger’s review (New York Times) of Lower School Librarian Laura Schlitz’s latest masterpiece, Splendor and Glooms: “Filled with lush language and delightful sensory details like the savored warmth of a velvet cloak, this marvelous story will keep readers absorbed throughout. While the intricate storytelling, captivating characters and evocative setting owe a great deal to Dickens, the book also feels very much in the tradition of such grand 20th-century writers as Joan Aiken and Elizabeth Goudge. Filled with heart-pounding and heart-rending moments, this delicious, glorious novel is the work of a master of children’s literature.” Read the full review here.
