A Kitten Tale by Eric Rohmann Knopf Books for Young Readers / $15.99 / ages 4-8 It's hot and sticky outside, so reading this book about four kittens in the snow might make you wish for winter. Three playful kittens are fearful about the impending snow, and one can't wait to play in it. A beautifully illustrated story about curiosity and overcoming fear is a winner any time of the year. A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever by Marla Frazee Harcourt / $16 / ages 4-8 A tongue-in-cheek story about summertime fun based on Frazee's son's adventures with his best pal as they stay at his grandparents' house and go to nature camp.

The Shadow Thieves Anne Ursu Ptolemy's Gate Jonathan Stroud Miramax/Hyperion / $17.95 / Ages 12-15 The final book in a series is often the most difficult to bring off. Jonathan Stroud is successful, largely because, from the beginning in The Bartimaeus Trilogy, he created a character, the genie Bartimaeus, whose witty overview and curmudgeonly interactions with the central characters are believable. Bartimaeus narrates some chapters, and we learn his history from the times of Ptolemy in much detail.

The Coldest Winter America and the Korean War By David Halberstam Hyperion / 736 pages / $35 The Korean War was a tragedy of errors. It began because Secretary of State Dean Acheson removed Korea from the defensive perimeter of the United States. Convinced that America would not intervene, the Soviet Union approved the plan of Kim Il Sung to attack South Korea. President Harry S. Truman then sent U.S. troops to the divided nation, under a United Nations mandate agreed to at a meeting boycotted by the Russians.

Q. Earlier in the summer, I noticed that one of my yellow daylilies had a light fragrance. Is this normal for daylilies? A. Most daylilies are not fragrant; however, you will find that some have a light fragrance. One of the best known of the fragrant daylilies is the cultivar 'Hyperion.' 'Hyperion' is not the most floriferous of daylilies, but it has nice lemon-yellow flowers and reaches a height of about 40 inches. It is therefore a good choice for the middle or back of a flower border, and it grows fairly well in partial shade.

SAY IT AIN'T so, Al. No sooner does Newt Gingrich give up an unseemly $4.5 million advance from HarperCollins and settle instead for a token $1 than another publisher, Hyperion, announces the August publication of "Enough Is Enough: Pasta, Potholes, and Other Things Worth Fighting For," by Sen. Al D'Amato, R-N.Y.As HarperCollins is owned by a media magnate, Rupert Murdoch, who has dealings before Congress, so Hyperion is owned by Disney, which may seek to curry favor on the Hill should it go through with its threat to revive the Disney's America theme park.

Review: Memoir THE TENDER BAR J.R. Moehringer Hyperion / 370 pages "TO BE A MAN, A BOY MUST SEE A man." The sentence shows up casually, in the middle of a paragraph, but it may as well be the refrain of J.R. Moehringer's soulful memoir, The Tender Bar. Life was rocky from the start: His father disappeared after cornering Moehringer's mother in the bathroom wi t h a straight razor when his son was 7 months old, and he was ever after a vaporous presence...

Granted, it never was that great to begin with. But wait until you see tonight what the WB has done to "Hyperion Bay."The drama about a dying seaside town that's both rejuvenated and ripped apart when a computer company arrives is being re-launched under the guidance of Frank South, who most recently served as executive producer for "Melrose Place.""Hyperion" started as a family drama last fall under the care of Joseph Daugherty ("thirtysomething"). At the time, there was lots of talk about "quality" from the WB. But the series never found an audience, and quality is no longer Job One in Hyperion Bay.Carmen Electra, the former "Baywatch" star who married Dennis Rodman, joins the cast in tonight's episode titled "Young and on Fire."

THOUSANDS of NAACP members descended on Baltimore for their convention this week, prompting visits to the major tourist attractions that line the Pratt Street corridor. What most of the hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit the Inner Harbor each year don't realize is that they are walking on sacred ground, where countless thousands of men, women, and children suffered during Baltimore's darkest hour. Between 1815 and 1860, traders in Baltimore made the port one of the leading disembarkation points for ships carrying slaves to New Orleans and other ports in the deep South.

Photographer William Wegman says it was quite a trick to get Fay Ray, who plays both Evil Stepmother and Fairy Godmother in his all-Weimaraner version of "Cinderella" ((Hyperion, $16.95) "to look benign and maternal after she's looked like Joan Crawford."Fay has a very wise, knowing, intelligent gaze, but that sort of intelligence can also be used to express wickedness."
