This book is the first in the Royal Rabbits series, which introduces Shylo Tawny-Tail, the tiny runt of his litter who isn’t afraid to rise to a challenge.
Life is an adventure. Anything in the world is possible—by will and by luck, with a moist carrot, a wet nose, and a slice of mad courage!
Shylo has always been the runt of the litter, the weakest and quietest of all of his family. His siblings spend their days making fun of him for not being like the rest of them. But when Shylo stumbles across a band of ratzis and overhears their evil plan to take a photo of the Queen in her nightie, it’s up to this unlikely hero to travel to London and inform the Royal Rabbits of London about the diabolical plot! The Royal Rabbits of London have a proud history of protecting the royal family and now the secret society need to leap into action to stop the ratzis…
But can a rabbit as feeble and shy as Shylo convince them that Queen is in danger?
The book is 224 pages long and recommended for children in grades 3-7.
The Collectors is a fantasy adventure that brings readers into a world where wishes are real and do come true — but beware, as not all wishes are necessarily good.
Fast-paced, witty, and riveting, this contemporary fantasy adventure has magic woven through every page. The Collectors begins an enchanting two-book series from Jacqueline West, the New York Times–bestselling author of The Books of Elsewhere series. For fans of Serafina and the Black Cloak, The Isle of the Lost, and The Secret Keepers. This middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 5 to 6, especially during homeschooling. It’s a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.
Van has always been an outsider. He’s hard of hearing, collects trinkets, and lives with his single mother—an opera singer with a huge personality. Then one day, Van notices a girl stealing pennies from a fountain, and everything changes. He follows the girl, Pebble, and uncovers an underground society full of wishes and the people who collect them. Not all wishes are good and even good wishes often have unintended consequences, and the Collectors have made it their duty to protect us. But they aren’t the only ones who have their eyes on the world’s wishes—and they may not be the good guys, after all.
This book is quite longer than the first selection, at 384 pages. It’s also recommended for children in grades 3-7.
August’s Bookroo box included two engaging chapter books ideal for children who have graduated from picture books and are ready for longer adventures. My daughters recently turned 8 and have started 3rd grade, so these books are perfect for their current reading level. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save 20% on any 3-month Bookroo subscription with coupon code “KEEPCALM“!
