NPR's Back-Seat Book Club Selects a Great Winter Read

NPR's Back-Seat Book Club for 9 to 14-year-olds has announced their selection for December, and it's a magical winter book for kids and parents/caregivers to read together.

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu is the story of fifth-graders Hazel and Jack, who are best friends until a magic mirror and an evil queen turn Jack's heart to ice. Hazel knows what she has to do: go on a quest to save Jack's life!

It's an enchanting fantasy with beautiful black and white illustrations (and a gorgeous cover) that really bring the story to life. Breadcrumbs is a middle grade chapter book, but the story is sure to captivate readers of all ages.

To participate, read the book then send your questions to NPR. Ann Ursu just might answer your question on All Things Considered at the end of December!

You can learn more about Breadcrumbs, check out podcasts of previous selections, and even submit photos on the NPR website.
