SEPTEMBER 2020 MIDDLE GRADE NOVEL BOX

  • Don’t Stand So Close To Me by Eric Walters. This book will certainly hit home as it’s the story of middle grade students who have their spring break extended because of a virus called COVID-19! Eric Walters is a very popular author of over 115 books that have collectively won over 100 awards. Eric is a former teacher and currently lives in Guelph, Ontario.
  • For our boy readers, Clan by bestselling author Sigmund Brouwer. This classic survival story has a prehistoric twist. It’s about a boy named Atlatl and the saber tooth cub he rescues from a wolf attack. Shunned by his family for a leg deformity, he has much to prove to his father who is the leader of the clan. Sigmund Brouwer has won many awards for his nearly 30 novels for children and adults. Sigmund lives in Red Deer, Alberta.
  • And for the girls, Pine Island Home by Polly Horvath. Four sisters are left orphaned when their parents are victims of a tsunami. After much searching, a great aunt on an island off British Columbia is excited to have the girls come and live with her. But then the aunt passes away before the girls arrive. Afraid that social services will separate them if they realize they don’t have a guardian, the girls create an elaborate story with the help of a grumpy old neighbour next door.  If this is your first time reading a Polly Horvath novel, you’re in for a real treat. Polly is a wonderful storyteller and one of my favourites. She lives in Metchosin, BC, about a half hour drive from our home in Victoria.
