26178: Corbett: Review: Arna Bontemps and Langston Hughes: Popo and Fifina (
From Bob Corbett
Book reviews are typically of new and up coming books. Mine frequently
aren't. Recently a list member as me to find her a copy of the 1932
children's novel by Bontemps and Hughes, POPO AND FIFINA. I then realized
I didn't even have a copy of the actual 1932 edition, but had a more
recent re-print, and I'd never read it.
I did find a few copies of the reprint, and paid a small forture for a
first edition I found for my own library. And, most importantly, I
finally read this marvelous little children's novel.
Please see the review at the url below. Bontemps and Hughes' 1932
achievemnt is quite extraordinary.
