review 1: This book was surprising and fun to read--a young boy who "can't read" living in a dystopian society, akin to a parallel-universe ghetto of WWII on the surface of the moon rises against the oppressors to save his race. An interesting note about the author is that Gardner was als...

review 1: A very cute VERY BRITISH fantasy detective series opener that will delight kids looking for a bit of whimsy and a bit of the odd in their reads. Emily Vole's story starts off very much like Cinderella, initially taken in by a well to do family and reduced to a servant in her own ...

Tinder (2013)

English

review 1: A dark dream-like fairytale that examines love and the horrors of war. Tinder is an exquisitely designed book, filled with a beautiful poetic prose, and amazing angular black and white (and red) illustrations that interact in unique ways with the text. The story, inspired by Hans...
