The Treehorn Trilogy: The Shrinking of Treehorn, Treehorn's Treasure, Treehorn's Wish
by Florence Parry Heide and Edward Gorey
Staff Pick
There's a little bit of Treehorn in all of us: hapless, imaginative, earnest. These are seriously silly tales, perfectly illustrated by the amazing Edward Gorey. Try reading them aloud with different voices for the dour father and prim, clueless mother... (read more)

The Cat Ate My Gymsuit
The Cat Ate My Gymsuit
by Paula Danziger
Staff Pick
There's nothing like being the chubby girl in class. No matter how smart or talented you are, people always sell you short. I was that girl in grade school, and this book helped me get through it. It makes you laugh, gets you all riled up at injustice... (read more)

The Pox Party (The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, #01)
The Pox Party (The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, #01)
by M. T. Anderson
Staff Pick

Just in Case
Just in Case
by Meg Rosoff
Staff Pick
Meg Rosoff's books are so unique, so crafted, and so utterly beautiful, I have a hard time coming up with apt descriptions — summaries always fall short. Like her first book, How I Live Now, this novel captures the essence of young adulthood while... (read more)
