Jack Blank and the Imagine Nation — Giveaway

by 5 Minutes for Books

Back in August, I was delighted to read Matt Myklusch’s debut middle grade novel, Jack Blank and the Imagine Nation (linked to my review). I loved the adventure and especially the humor, and I happily passed the book along to my ten year old son, whose assessment was as positive as mine. (Go ahead and read my review at 5 Minutes for Books… we’ll wait. It was really that good, I swear!)

My regard for this book was so high, I happily included it in our 5 Star Reads collection, the best of the best, in our opinions. Since the summer, I’ve been recommending it to friends who have older children, especially those in that infamous “reluctant readers” category, which often translates to “boys who’d rather be moving around than reading a book.” With a book like this, the action and fast-pace will definitely keep readers engaged. I would highly recommend Jack Blank and the Imagine Nation be added to your gift lists for kids aged 9-12, especially those who are interested in series, as this is the first book in a trilogy, and so I am pleased to be able to offer a giveaway along with this gift-giving recommendation.

The publisher is generously offering 1 copy of Jack Blank and the Imagine Nation, along with an exclusive comic drawn by Matt Myklusch! (U.S. only, please).

This is a part of the 5 Minutes for Books 2010 Gift Guide and Giveaway event. All winners will be announced over at 5 Minutes for Books on December 5.
