Tales By Mail – Book Subscription

Today on the blog I’m excited to share with you a wonderful book subscription that I have been sent that I absolutely loved. I hate to mention the C word in October but I’m reliably informed by my children that Christmas is only 63 days away and if you’re looking for a perfect gift for Christmas (or even birthdays) or you know a child who just loves books then this would be an ideal treat. Tales By Mail is a bi-monthly book subscription service featuring middle grade books for 8 – 12 years. I will be revealing the contents of the latest box, Magic Menageries…

Let’s find out what’s inside the box…

Not only do you received these wonderful books featuring fantastic beasts, each box will also contain signed bookplates and letters from the authors, Chronicle pages including games and activities and a few themed surprises. A follow-up podcast episode will include Q&As with the authors and a book group chat with our school Pod Squad. My daughter absolutely loved all of these added extras especially the badges and temporary tattoos. It’s such a treat for booklovers to have signed bookplates especially at the moment with no real life book events taking place, it makes the books really special for them. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s inside…

Let’s move on to the stars of the show, the books themselves…

BOOK ONE stars an animal lover who gets more than she bargained for when she takes on a role caring for a strange collection of magical creatures at a spooky ancient hall! With a house full of dark secrets and so many weird and wonderful animals to look after, can our young heroine rise to the challenge?

This book doesn’t officially hit bookshop shelves until November 2020, meaning that Tales by Mail members will get to read it before anyone else!!

BOOK TWO is set during the Blitz in London and features a brave brother on a mission to save his sister. Luckily, his three imaginary friends come to life to help with his quest! However, their rescue team is put under pressure when a strange magical enemy is called from a mystical realm to chase them down, can they escape unscathed before the war catches up?

Can you guess what they might be? If you don’t want to find out what books are inside the Magical Menageries box click here to visit the website.

And for those of you who can’t resist finding out what they are…

Ross Montgomery’s, ‘The Midnight Guardians,’ and Damaris Young’s, ‘The Creature Keeper,’ both feature in this month’s box. I’m a huge fan of both Ross and Damaris and will be featuring reviews of both of these books next month on the blog. I think these are brilliant choices and will absolutely enchant and delight children (and adults alike) with their truly magical storytelling.

To find out more about these subscriptions and order your own box, head over to the website.

Thanks to Tales By Mail for sending me a gifted Magical Menageries box, my daughter was overjoyed to receive this and has already devoured Ross’s book and told me that I have to read it!
