"My favorite book is The Hungry Fox and the Foxy Duck by Kathleen Leverich. I like the duck and the fox because the fox wants to eat the duck, but the duck already knows about it. The duck lies to the fox because she does not want to be French toast. This is a good book. I really liked it." -- Sora Rivka Goliger Norbel Elementary "My favorite book is Doug Cheats by Linda Garvey, Danny Campbell and Kimberly Campbell. I like this book because Doug has a big history test coming and every time he starts studying he has to do something or he falls asleep.

St. Francis of Assisi embraced the leper. Doug the Mechanic, who received the Franciscan spirit as a student at Archbishop Curley High School in Baltimore, tried to embrace the felon, but now he says he's done. "Never again," he declared the other day. "It's a lost cause." Doug the Mechanic asked not to be identified in this column. He prefers that customers of his repair shop in Harford County not know that he's had an ex-offender working on their cars. Having an open mind about hiring people with criminal records is not something businesses generally want to advertise.

Farewell Summer Ray Bradbury William Morrow / 224 pages / $24.95 "Is death being on a ship sailing and all your folks left back on the shore?" asks 13-year-old Doug of his grandfather in Ray Bradbury's latest, Farewell Summer. "That's about it, Doug," replies the grandfather - and in Doug's head "the storm began." It's the storm of adolescence, the turmoil of loss, and it hangs low over Farewell Summer, Bradbury's long-delayed follow-up to his 1957 semi-autobiographical Dandelion Wine, which featured a 12-year-old Douglas Spaulding in a handful of short stories that read like miniatures of intricate clockwork, each perfectly machined and chiming with the cogs and gears of idiosyncratic characters, building into a contraption that was as much a time machine as the mysterious creation that lived in the garage of a town denizen.
