On The Home Front (Two)

My son Andy (11, and a saint!) made my night by telling me that he had finished reading NR’s new kid’s book, L. Frank Baum’s classic, Queen Zixi of Ix, and that he had loved it. Now, for my Andy to love a book, it has got to be good, and I’ll take his thumb’s up as proof that you too should get a copy of Queen Zixi of Ix for your own child or grandchild (it’s perfect for those in the 5th through 8th grade range). Queen Zixi is a great adventure tale involving magic and war and mischief and nefarious creatures, where good is tested mightily but prevails over evil. It will surely remind you of Baum’s best-known book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, except that Queen Zixi of Ix is even better (so admitted Baum!). Anyway, we want you to have a FREE copy of this beautiful book, and you will when you purchase any of our other wholesome, critically acclaimed children’s titles — the original and volume two editions of The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature and The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories.
