I'm a big fan of Avi. I say that, even though I have only scratched the surface of his extensive body of work. I have read three novels, two picture books and one collection of short stories, and each book is as different as can be from the other. He is a wonderful craftsman, and it seems that no genre is beyond his talents. "Charlotte Doyle" has been on my "to read" list for quite some time. I'm pleased to finally be settling down with her.
