#Kidlit4Japan Auction #117 from Ellen Booraem

Auction #117: Signed hardcover of SMALL PERSONS WITH WINGS and paperback of THE UNNAMEABLES from Ellen Booraem

Image provided by donorDescription: SMALL PERSONS WITH WINGS is the story of a snarky 13-year-old endangered by the equally snarky fairies with whom her family has an ancient pact. In a starred review (one of three!), Publishers Weekly described it as “wistful, humorous, and clever.” THE UNNAMEABLES is about a modern-day island whose isolated culture has become strictly utilitarian, a boy who secretly makes art, and a magical creature who helps him shake things up. Kirkus Reviews deemed it a Best Book of 2008, calling it “an ever-surprising, genre-defying page-turner,” and it was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Both books are for ages nine and older.

Estimated Value: $24
Auction Begins: Friday 4/8 @ 1:00PM EDT
Auction Ends: Wednesday 4/13 @ 1:00PM EDT
