I am vice president of the special needs parents council for my public school district. Our president was approached by our city's public library children's room director because books on special needs and/or disabilities are underepresented in our children's room. What books do you recommend our public library get to better represent this population?

My son is almost 10, and I'm trying to help him develop a love of reading. His requests were mysteries, fictional, and if they could feature anthropomorphic bugs, all the better. In my searching, I did come across Bug Muldoon, which he has devoured. I'd love to find more books that he might enjoy. He said that bugs weren't necessary, but he did very much enjoy them. He recently read all the Encyclopedia Brown novels, and I'm not sure where to go next for him. Are there other authors or series I should be looking at?

Can you think of any children's books that reference pretzels? I'm trying to remember a book in which a child spends her allowance on a pretzel stick and slowly licks the salt off--but it's NOT All of a Kind Family. [more inside]
I'm trying to remember a children's book. There is an explosive so powerful that a single grain of it would cause a huge blast. It is in the possession of a sinister person. Our tiny hero rides a bird, steals the explosive, and (spoiler) drops it in the ocean, where it detonates relatively harmlessly. [more inside]
