This Week at TLT
It’s Quirk Books Week!
Ransom Riggs is one of Quirk’s most famous authors. Here is our original review for Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (from 2011.) We also have the book trailer for the sequel – Hollow City by Ransom Riggs. Finally, you can read my experience of meeting Ransom Riggs at one of his first tour stops for Miss Peregrine.
Quirk publishes some truly fun and inspiring cookbooks. Read our Take 5 detailing their wonders. Give in to Marshmallow Madness with our Teen Program in a Box. Go liliputian with a Tiny Food Party, or try food on a stick – everyone’s favorite!
Looking for a good (and fun) scare? Try Quirk’s Tales from Lovecraft Middle.
Around the Web
Check out your December issue of VOYA Magazine to read Karen’s starred review of THE LIVING by Matt de la Pena: “A great read for those looking for adventure and survival stories with some good character growth and introspection for others, this should have a wide and satisfied readership. There is some mild language, but this title is highly recommended for all libraries.”
