‘Boys in Trees’ is the remarkable life story of musician Carly Simon—the first performer to win simultaneous Grammy, Academy, and Gold Globe awards. Less known about Simon is her literary background—she is the daughter of the founder of Simon & Schuster Publishing House.

Alexandria Horowitz gives younger readers a dog’s eye view of how canines perceive their world in ‘Inside of a Dog.’
