Even before darker anxieties took hold, the bad guys of "Scooby-Doo" were charmingly quaint. An evil circus owner, a grumpy civil servant, a plotting first mate — these were the villains of "Scooby-Doo," all of them revealed with an unmasking flourish and the cursing of "you meddling kids."

As the days go by, I am being forced to become more creative with my cooking. I've always been a fan of stews and hearty soups, and I make them all year round to stock my freezer. That stash has started to run low lately. So it was time to see what I could make out of the slim pickings I had…

The protagonist of “No More Dead Dogs” by Gordon Korman is the school football hero, Wallace Wallace. He’s suspended from the team for writing an unfavorable review of “Old Shep, My Pal.” Not understanding why the dog in every classic novel has to die in the end, Wallace said he hated every …
