What to Read Next? More Exceptional Late Fall 2017 Chapter Books
The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris and Alec Azam, illustrated by Lissy Marlin and Kyle Hilton
Carter’s had a rough life, even now after he runs away from his crook of an uncle and lands in a New England town. There he encounters unsavory carnival people who remind him of his uncle. At the town’s magic shop, Carter meets a young girl and her fathers who love magic just like him. He and his new kid friends set out to thwart the carnie’s plot to steal the world’s biggest diamond. And maybe in the process, his luck will turn around. Through the book are ciphers, codes, and tricks giving this already delightful story extra oomph. It’s an entertaining start to a magical new series.
Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi
This beguiling story of Whichwood (which can be read independent of the first novel) captures the humanity of loneliness, love, and life’s purpose. It’s a beautiful story of a mordeshoor girl with magic over the dead in a town that no longer values her work. Two young strangers appear on Laylee’s doorstep to help. They mostly fail. To succeed, they’ll need a second chance and help from their buggy friend and thousands of reanimated corpses. It’s not your average story, it’s better. Mafi’s prose takes you on a journey of it’s own — absolutely exquisite wordsmithing.
