Literati is transitioning to sending books more tailored to each kid (saves on returns). Adrian’s level is “Legend” which means he’ll get middle grade and young adult fiction, activity books, and graphic novels at or above grade level for his age.
The theme for May was Live Your Own Story. The art had three panels, one with a castle and dragon, one flying over a city, and one in a jungle (it’s always fun to find what in the books relates to the artwork). The matching bookplates and stickers are really pretty. There’s a card with a quiz to determine what character you are (hero, trickster, or explorer). Also included was a reading journal with space for drawing or writing about each book and stickers and story badges to decorate the pages (and three coloring breaks, one for every five books).
Spell Hacker by MK England sounds like a fun adventure, The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix sounds like quite the magical ride, and Feeder by Patrick Weekes sounds a bit crazy.
Another Kind by Trevor Beam and Cait May is a graphic novel (so sure to be Adrian’s favorite of the month) that sounds totally bizarre and Early Departures by Justin A. Reynolds sounds wild and also crazy emotional.
