The stories in Shadow Show succeed in finding something new in the classic themes and settings of Ray Bradbury. Standouts include "The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury" by Neil Gaiman, "Two of a Kind" by Jacquelyn Mitchard, "Little America" by Dan Chaon, and Joe Hill's "By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain." Previous knowledge of Bradbury's work is not essential, but some familiarity may be advised for younger readers.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
