Brookline Bookseller & Events Director Jamie recommends:
The premise: a machine tells you how you'll die. The twist: it's not always literal. This collection might be messed up but it's so, so good.

Gorgeous illustrations, beautiful design, and a compelling story to boot. Miriam Katin crafts a story of long-held grudges, culture, and finally, acceptance.
Hey, Budding-Writer-who-needs-a-kick-in-the-pants. Raymond Queneau is here to make you want to play with language, mixing up your perspective. It's not the story that's good - it's the way you tell it.

I read most of this book while in the middle seat of a crowded train, squished in between an old woman laden with bags and a blasé young man who kept tapping his foot. I recommend you read this in a place where you can't fully settle, a jittery kind of place that suspends you between two things you didn't think you'd ever be between.

These two touch-and-feel books are excellent for familiarizing your young writer or mathematician-to-be with letters and numbers.
