The Anybodies

The Anybodies
written by N.E. Bode

This is a must for children's book lovers!  It mimics the styles of Roald Dahl, Lemony Snicket, Harry Potter, and many more, and beyond that, references them, too.  It features a girl who can bring elements out of the books they came from and a grandmother with a house literally made of books.  And the characters!  They are all quirky and lovable, and even the antagonist is given a chance to be explained.  Mad props to any book that can explain the effects of trauma on a person's ability to love.  Easily one of my new favorites.

Rating: 5/5
