Postern of Number Tomboy

The Number Devil, by Hans Magnus Enzensberger
A playful, funny kid's book that reminded me of reading Martin Gardner in my youth, only a bit more straightforward and with a book-long through narrative. I enjoyed it and there is a nearly-11-year-old I know who will enjoy it even more (because these fun math tricks will truly be new to him, rather than nostalgia-tinged as they are for me).

Tomboy, by Liz Prince
Practically perfect from stem to stern. Simple, compelling art, interesting episodes, and it had its hooks in me emotionally from the get-go.

Postern of Fate, by Agatha Christie
This was rather pointless in many ways, but so dang charming I didn't much mind. Purportedly a mystery novel about spies.
