Our Fantastic Week Ahead: August 29

Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryFor many, Roald Dahl's books are some of their favorites from childhood.

The BFG.

James and the Giant Peach.

Matilda.

And perhaps most well-loved, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Dahl's books bring together fantasy, everyday reality, and humor into a mix that is irresistable, and this week, we're excited about the relase of the Penguin Deluxe edition of the novel, complete with cover art by Ivan Brunetti and an introduction by Lev Grossman.

Our Fantastic Week Ahead: August 15

Thanks again to everyone who contributed to last week's celebration of Lev Grossman's The Magician King!  We were really excited to be able to feature a novel this way, and we hope that you all have had a chance to pick up a copy of Grossman's novel for yourselves.  And if you haven't already, take a look at what Grossman himself had to say about how he wrote the novel--it's a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at his writing process, and it also provides a list of fantastic texts that went into the novel that will themselves keep you entertained for weeks.

Our Fantastic Week Ahead: August 8

The Magician KingHappy Magicians' Week!  We're celebrating the release of Lev Grossman's novel The Magician King this week, and to do so, we have all sorts of exciting magicians-related content to share with you.

As many of you might know, The Magician King is the sequel to The Magicians, Grossman's 2009 novel about a boy named Quentin Coldwater, his love of a children's series of fantasy novels, and a school for magic in upstate New York.  It's a wonderful novel, and one that we highly recommend, so needless to say, we're excited about the sequel!

We got things started early last Friday with this post about the world outside of The Magicians--a world that blurs the line between our reality and the reality of the novel in clever, creative, and fun ways.  And we'll continue the fun this week in many ways--including a guest post from Lev Grossman himself!
