Book Review Digest is an essential library tool that brings together book reviews on a wide range of topics, from a variety of sources. Unlike reviews on book-sale sites and the open Internet, many of the reviews are serious, academic works. This invaluable resource for literary and biographical research is essential for readers' advisory and collection development. It provides excerpts from, and citations to, reviews of adult and juvenile fiction and non-fiction. It also includes descriptive summaries of the books. Virtually every book has at least one substantial review excerpt, and most have at least two.

Walden ist eine gewöhnliche, verschlafene Kleinstadt – bis sich von einem Tag auf den anderen eine unerklärliche Schwärze herabsenkt und Walden von der Außenwelt abschottet. Jeder, der die Stadt verlassen will, verschwindet spurlos – nur die Schreie dringen aus der Finsternis. Als das Dunkel schließlich seine furchtbare Gestalt offenbart, geht es für Waldens Bewohner ums nackte Überleben.

Astrid Lindgren, author of the famed Pippi Longstocking novels, is perhaps one of the most significant children's authors of the last half of the twentieth century. In this collection contributors consider films, music, and picturebooks relating to Lindgren, in addition to the author's reception internationally. Touching on everything from the Astrid Lindgren theme park at Vimmerby, Sweden to the hidden folk songs in Lindgren's works to the use of nostalgia in film adaptations of Lindgren's novels, this collection offers an important international and intermedial portrait of Lindgren research today.
