Meanwhile Back on Earth
For: Ages 4-8

If you’re looking for a wonderful new book for their collection and don’t want to get them one they already have, look no further than this new release by Oliver Jeffers – the author of international bestsellers Here We Are and What We’ll Build.

A father takes his two children on a thrilling out-of-this-world adventure into space and invites them to look back at Earth and the conflicts that have taken place since the beginning of time. This becomes a brief history of the world and a whistle-stop guide to the universe, all rolled into one – and told with Oliver Jeffers’s inimitable perspective, wit and exquisite artwork.

Meanwhile Back on Earth gives a unique look at life on Earth with a cosmic perspective – and an enduring message that what binds us together matters more than what sets us apart. A timely story for families everywhere.

Meanwhile Back on Earth, $24

Harry Potter Cluedo
For: Ages 9+

You can’t really go wrong with a board game – and this one is more than just a complete classic game, it’s Cluedo WITH HARRY POTTER. Could there be a better combo?

Here are the deets: A friend has seemingly vanished! Playing as Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Luna or Neville, you must try to discover who did it, what spell or item they used and where the student was attacked. Was it Fenrir Greenback with a Cursed Necklace in the Forbidden Forest?

Use the Floo Network to travel faster through the wizarding world … but watch out for unlit fireplaces. When you’re sure of your facts, go to The Burrow to make your final accusation and win the game!

Harry Potter Cluedo, $69.99
