Every now and then we encounter a new children's book or series that we’re so excited about we want to broadcast it from the rooftop. We've created the Tattered Cover Kids' V.I.B. (Very Impressive Book) to highlight real stand-outs among the many delightful and meaningful new editions for young readers.
Our latest selection is:
The 11:11 Wish by Kim Tomsic
“This charmingly delightful and magical story introduces us to Megan, the new kid in 7th grade. She accidentally stumbles upon the magic contained in an old cat-shaped clock in one of her classrooms…when the magic becomes real at exactly 11:11 am as she silently chants an old saying of her grandmother’s. Wild occurrences and antics ensue and Megan must find a way out of them all. A perfect kids’ book club or classroom pick—or just to read alone, The 11:11 Wish has themes of being the new kid, social acceptance and fitting in, and bring true to who you are; issues that many kids struggle with. The book would be a great tool to tackle them. And it’s such a fun book at the same time! I thoroughly enjoyed it!” --Kristen Gilligan
