When Charlie McButton Lost Power by Suzanne Collins – Value $6.37 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)
This book is written by Suzanne Collins, the author of the Hunger Games trilogy! It is about a boy obsessed with all things electronic like video games and during a blackout feels his world crashing in. He ends up having a wonderful day playing hide-and-seek with his little sister and building blanket forts. Suzanne Collins’s rhymes are awesome. The book is fast-paced, clever and funny. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Lulu’s Party by Kit Chase – Value $7.18 on Amazon (retail price $16.99)
On a rainy day, Lulu invites her friends over for a party. In preparation for their arrival she mixes up some homemade hot chocolate but a salty spill makes this hot chocolate taste terrible. What are they to do? Why chocolate milkshakes of course with some melted ice cream instead. These sweet illustration by Kit Chase are undeniably adorable. This short tale of friends charmed my daughter (and me too)!
Verdict: The value of Bookroo this month was over $13 (using Amazon prices) which is lower than usual (and lower than the cost of the box). However, both selections were real crowd pleasers. They were new-to-me stories and I love discovering titles I’ve never seen before. We love receiving Bookroo’s beautifully wrapped books each month. I highly recommend this subscription to the little bookworm in your life.
