Me and Marvin Gar­dens | Ages 10-13 Amy Sarig King (Scholas­tic Books)

Canadian Wildlife - - OUTDOORS -

Mag­i­cal re­al­ism com­bined with sound science makes this novel for mid­dle school­ers both whim­si­cal and down-to-earth. Con­cerned about the fate of the en­vi­ron­ment, par­tic­u­larly the trash-clogged creek on his fam­ily’s old prop­erty, sixth-grader Obe thinks he has found the an­swer when he dis­cov­ers a new type of an­i­mal that ex­clu­sively eats plas­tic. Fans of Won­der and other “is­sue” books will find a lot to re­late to in this new mid­dle-grade of­fer­ing from pop­u­lar Cana­dian young-adult au­thor King.
