Marvelous Middle-Grade Monday

It's Monday, and that means we have a fabulous book for Middle-Graders to tell you about!  This is our favorite meme started by Ms. Shannon, and there are so many wonderful bloggers and middle-grade books to tell you about, so make sure you visit Ms. Shannon's Blog to see what's happening!

Emiline's Marvelous Middle-Grade Monday Pick is:
Oddfellow's Orphanage by Emily Winfield Martin
     Have you ever felt misplaced or ODD?  Well then, Oddfellow's Orphanage is the perfect place for you.  It has classes on monsters, fairytales, and even contellations. There are bears, and Onion Boys, and Baby New Years, oh my!
     If you are familiar with Emily Winfield Martin's paintings then you will love this book.  It's really cute, because of all the mysterious things in it.

This is MY picture!

If you need to give somebody a gift you should get this book and the paper doll book for them.  I love her characters and her art.  I've had lots of fun playing with the paper dolls.

You can find out more about Ms. Martin by visiting her website:
Make sure you check out her Etsy page for some fantastical pictures! I want them all!
