INTERMEDIATE FICTION

Mightier Than the Sword

(4) 4-6 Illustrated by Ryan Andrews. This unique, interactive second-person narrative casts the reader as a character trying to escape from a fantastical world populated by, among others, an evil queen and her robot minions, an enormous dung beetle, and a French-speaking stoat. The wordplay-heavy adventures follow one another rapid-fire without much character development. Still, humorous characters and clever activities such as word scrambles and drawing prompts should keep readers engaged and entertained.
