The Skull of Truth: A Magic Shop Book (Magic Shop Books) Cover

 

Staff Pick

I love the Magic Shop series. It's wonderful for the middle reader, as well as an adult reading out loud to a child (or just for themselves). The Skull of Truth introduces Yorick (yes, of Hamlet fame). Ever wonder what happened to him after the soliloquy? Well, he ended up in Mr. Elive's magic shop of course. And, boy oh boy-howdy, does Yorick have a lot to say about himself and Shakespeare. What a great way to introduce a youngster to Shakespeare!
