Review: Send-A-Story from Houghton Mifflin

Send-A-Story from Houghton Mifflin.

I don’t usually write posts like this one, but I think this line of books is genius!  Specially designed mailable paperback versions of backlist titles.  Kids love to get mail, and these could also be sent instead of greeting cards in some cases or just because.  The current list price for the line is $4.99.  So for that plus the cost of three postage stamps, one of these little books could be on its way to a child in your life.  Each book has a mailing label for writing the address and a sticker to seal the book closed.  There is a place on the inside cover to write a message.  This fall Christmas, Hanukkah and winter stories are being released in this format.

More details in this Publisher’s Weekly article.

Current titles:  Everywhere Babies by Marla Frazee, Won’t You Be My Kissaroo by Joanne Ryder, I Like You by Sandol Stoddard, No Matter What by Debi Gliori.

Coming October 2011: Santa Claus the World’s Number One Toy Expert by Marla Frazee, Annie and the Wild Animals by Jan Brett, Latkes, Latkes, Good to Eat by Naomi Howland and T’was the Night Before Christmas by Clement Clark Moore.
