Very, very cool, Heather! For those who need a little direction (like me!), it is under the Browse By tab and then Appeal. You can also select the grade level.

"I really didn't realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous group. They are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn't mess with them."
Michael Moore

Friends & Colleagues, I just found the coolest thing on Novelist: the Appeal Mixer<http://web.a.ebscohost.com/novpk8/appeals?vid=10&sid=e38bb414-8c0a-4c81-984a-91e9d9494a55%40sessionmgr4008&audience=2>. Have you tried it?

You can select by 3 age categories, and pick for a bunch of different appeal factors associated with six categories of appeal factors: character, illustration, pace, storyline, tone, and writing style. For example, I just created a list of books with religiously diverse characters, cartoony illustrations, and a feel-good tone. SO FUN.
