All this week we featured The Chronicles of Harris Burdick by Chris van Allsburg and others–it landed at no. 10 this week on the best sellers list. In paperbacks, Salman Rushdie’s Luka and the Fire of Life was also at no. 10.
And in book series, congratulations to Julie Kawaga whose Iron Fey series is at no. 7 thanks to the latest release in the series, The Iron Knight.
