Enter to Win: Five Magical Reads

Folk lore, fantasy and fairy tales intertwine in these enchanting stories

The Hike by Drew Magary – From the author of The Postmortal, a fantasy saga unlike any you’ve read before, weaving elements of folk tales and video games into a riveting, unforgettable adventure of what a man will endure to return to his family

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden – At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts grow taller than houses. But Vasilisa doesn’t mind—she spends the winter nights huddled around the embers of a fire with her beloved siblings, listening to her nurse’s fairy tales.

The Snow Queen and The Fir Tree by Hans Christian Andersen – Hans Christian Andersen’s magical tale of friendship and adventure and his tragic tale of naive greed and dissatisfaction are both retold through the striking and contemporary illustrations of Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka.

The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman – Enter the luminous and haunting world of Blackwell, Massachusetts, where at the center of everyone’s life is a mysterious garden where only red plants can grow, and where the truth can be found by those who dare to look.
