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.

*

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:

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

For the past six years, Matty has lived in Village and flourished under the guidance of Seer, a blind man, known for his special sight. Village was a place that welcomed newcomers, but something sinister has seeped into Village and the people have voted to close it to outsiders. Matty has been invaluable as a messenger. Now he must make one last journey through the treacherous forest with his only weapon, a power he unexpectedly discovers within himself.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Critically acclaimed and bestselling author Lowry returns with the eagerly anticipated companion to "Gathering Blue" and "The Giver," winner of the Newbery Medal.

Michael Taylor, February 17, 2007 (view all comments by Michael Taylor)
The Messenger, Gathering Blue and The Giver can be read in any order and each stands on its own merits but those who enjoy any individual title will want to read all three because the stories are beautifully interwoven. Lowry still needs to resolve some of the story lines and things brought up in this continuing tale and so look forward to reading additional books about these characters, their very believable communities and world they live in.
