This is an excellent example of books I bumped to the top of my reading pile because I’ve been trying to fill in my A-Z Challenge for 2017 on GoodReads’ GMGR group (Great Middle Grade Reads). These were my Y, O, and K titles…
You Wish (The Misadventures of Benjamin Bartholomew Piff, #1) is the beginning of a charming younger middlegrade collection that introduces readers to the Wish Factory, where children’s wishes come true.
Odd and the Frost Giants is a short story steeped in Norse mythology. I can’t say much without spoiling the fun … so I won’t say anything more. Except that it’s good.
The Kneebone Boy follows the three Hardscrabble children, who are inadvertently sent to stay with someone that’s away. This is a strange contemporary slice-of-life story set in England. Slow to start, it meanders a bit, but I liked how everything resolved.
