The time of year for gift-giving is upon us, and we at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester are here to help you find wonderful reads for all ages. We have [hopefully] made it easier for you by stocking boxed sets of some of our favourites.
For our earliest readers, we’ve brought in TONY MITTON’S AMAZING MACHINES, a boxed set of ten books including ROARING ROCKETS, FLASHING FIRE TRUCKS, DAZZLING DIGGERS, TERRIFIC TRAINS, and more, as well as DR. SEUSS’S BEGINNER BOX, containing such well-known books as THE CAT IN THE HAT, HOP ON POP, GREEN EGGS AND HAM, ONE FISH TWO FISH, and FOX IN SOCKS.
Our selection for young readers includes: Maurice Sendak’s Nutshell Library, including ALLIGATORS ALL AROUND and CHICKEN SOUP WITH RICE… Arnold Lobel’s FROG AND TOAD COLLECTION… Sara Pennypacker’s A BOX OF CLEMENTINES… Jeff Brown’s FLAT STANLEY IN A BOX… Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi’s SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES… and Elsa Holmelund Minarik’s LITTLE BEAR STORIES.
For those readers ready for more of a challenge, we’ve got classics like: THE COMPLETE OZ PAPERBACK COLLECTION by L. Frank Baum and Ruth Plumly Thompson… THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA by C.S. Lewis, with beautiful full-colour illustrations and maps by Pauline Baynes… THE TIME QUARTET by Madeleine L’Engle… and Patty’s favourite, THE CHRONICLES OF PRYDAIN by Lloyd Alexander.
Part Two of “Boxed Sets Make Great Gifts” will feature collections for teens and adults.
In the meantime, come down to see us at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester at 65 James Street and check out more offerings for the holidays.
