NEW ARRIVALS – Boxed Sets Make Great Gifts, Part One

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.

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.

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.
