Welcome to the June installment of my Book of the Month Club. These books have been suggested by a fellow Librarian from Earth, her name is Kit Ward-Crixell and she is a librarian in New Braunfels, Texas, USA.
This month we focus on books that are reminiscent of Zafaria! This month's Book of the Month is The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm
by Nancy Farmer. This book is set in Ethiopia, an African country, in the future! Ear, Eye, and Arm are detectives in a not-very-successful detective agency. They're hired by General Amadeus Matsika to find his children, who have sneaked out of the house to go on an adventure and are missing. This story alternates between telling about the detectives and telling about the kids, who are having way more adventures than they bargained for! This exciting book also has funny parts, and even though it's set in a made-up future, it has real African history and folklore too.
Look for this book in your school or local library and enjoy reading, young Wizards!
