Publisher Comments:

Discover the worlds of Lois Lowry in this beautiful boxed set. This perfect gift collection by New York Times bestselling author Lois Lowry, which includes the award-winning titles The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger, is available to coincide with the publication of Lowry’s newest book, Son. Lowry was twice the recipient of the Newbery Medal, for Number the Stars and for The Giver. Her powerful and provocative novels are full of suspense, drama, and heart-wrenching action.

 

The Giver: When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out for special training from The Giver. Now it’s time for Jonas to learn the truth. There is no turning back.

*

Gathering Blue: Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg, lives in a world where the weak are cast aside. When she is given a task that no other community member can carry out, Kira realizes that she is surrounded by mysteries and secrets—and finds that she possesses an extraordinary power.

*

Messenger: Matty has always been proud to be Village’s Messenger. But now that Village is closing its once-welcoming doors, Matty must make one last journey through the treacherous forest—and one great sacrifice to save the place he loves.

*

Lowry’s novels feature remarkable characters. This boxed set reveals the unexpected connections among their lives.

The Worlds of Lois Lowry boxed set is the perfect gift this holiday season. 

Synopsis:

Kira, an orphan with a lame leg, lives in a world where the weak are cast aside. She is spared by the Council of Guardians, who recognize her gift as a weaver. But Kira soon realizes she is surrounded by secrets. This companion novel to Lowry's "The Giver" is reissued in this Readers Circle edition, which includes a reading group discussion guide.

Synopsis:

The second book in Lois Lowry's Giver Quartet tells the story of Kira, orphaned, physically flawed, and left with an uncertain future.

Synopsis:

Lois Lowry won her first Newbery Medal in 1994 for The Giver. Six years later, she ushered readers back into its mysterious but plausible future world in Gathering Blue to tell the story of Kira, orphaned, physically flawed, and left with an uncertain future. This second book in the Giver Quartet has been stunningly redesigned in paperback. As she did in The Giver and later Messenger, in Gathering Blue Lois Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, how people could evolve, and what could be considered valuable.

Synopsis:

Lois Lowry’s Gathering Blue continues the quartet beginning with the quintessential dystopian novel, The Giver, followed by Messenger and Son.

Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg, lives in a world where the weak are cast aside. She fears for her future until she is spared by the all-powerful Council of Guardians. Kira is a gifted weaver and is given a task that no other community member can do. While her talent keeps her alive and brings certain privileges, Kira soon realizes she is surrounded by many mysteries and secrets. No one must know of her plans to uncover the truth about her world and see what places exist beyond.

This book is a wonderful book for all ages and is especially a good one for book clubs. Although the book is geared primarily towards jr. high or middle school youth, adults will take away even more from this book, its story and message. At work (a University in the midwest) we are reading the entire triology set and discussion regarding the books have been wonderful, varied and thought-provoking to say the least. I hope that you decide to read the book and see why people recommend it.
