Ever had one of those days when your parents get murdered by assassins from another planet, and your toothbrush tells you to head for an ancient castle, to shut down a dangerous inter-dimensional portal? Yeah, me too. That was last Monday.
This is at once both a light-hearted parody of common fantasy book tropes and an earnest and engaging quest.
In Ginger Kid, popular comedian Steve Hofstetter grapples with life after seventh grade . . . when his world fell apart. Formatted as a series of personal essays, Steve walks his readers through awkward early dating, family turbulence, and the revenge of the bullied nerds.
A memoir of Steve Hofstetter’s high school years that’s both poignant and laugh out loud funny.
In the land of Ingary, where seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, Sophie Hatter attracts the unwelcome attention of the Witch of the Waste, who puts a curse on her. Determined to make the best of things, Sophie travels to the one place where she might get help - the moving castle which hovers on the nearby hills.
Sophie is snarky and Howl is a skirt-chasing coward. Comedy and a deeply satisfying story are what characterise this lovely book.
Follow me, Jonny Rowe, on a wild goose-chase from Ireland to the USA with my American grandfather's remains in my red birthday balloon. I use 'remains' in the loosest sense of the word: my grandfather, 45, puffed his last breaths of air into my birthday balloon before suffering a massive heart attack right there at my birthday party which becomes his deathday party.
A darkly hilarious novel that will have you cackling at the book like a lunatic.
In a world whose seasons are defined by Christmas sales and Spring Fashions, hundreds of tiny nomes live in the corners and crannies of a human-run department store. They have made their homes beneath the floorboards for generations and no longer remember -- or even believe in -- life beyond the Store walls.
Packed with Pratchett’s delicate blend of hilarity and moving themes, this series is a delight on all counts.
