37 Painfully Funny Secret Santa Gifts (These are Hilarious)
Excellent storytelling and illustrations kept me totally enthralled in this not-your-average-fairy tale story. Gaiman shares stories of the beginning of the Gods, how the Nine Worlds were formed, how Odin lost one eye, the children of Loki, and so much more, all the way to Ragnarok. These stories are more bloody than the Greek pantheon but they are quite entertaining none the less and hard to put down once you get reading.

When I present in middle schools, I meet lots of kids interested in nonfiction. But I would say these are all good middle school titles. I once had a 2nd grader ask if my Titanic book was based on the movie. This happened to us — my husband brought home the classic German U-Boat film, Das Boot, and we got hooked on submarine movies. And my next book is called DIVE! Would love to see a list for advanced readers. So no scarlet letter or the like. Any suggestions? Give me a few days.
