By Lowry, LoisIllustrated by Ibatoulline, Bagram
It's been approximately sixteen years since one of the most prolific and influentional novels of our time--Lois Lowry's The Giver-- received the Newbery Medal in 1994. The story centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal world. Not until he is given his life... assignment as the Receiver does he begin to understand the dark secrets behind this fragile community. This gift edition celebrates this Houghton Mifflin touchstone and a Two-Time Newbery Medalist with twelve freshly brushed illustrations by acclaimed artist Bagram Ibatoulline. The Giver as a book stands on its own, of course, but the illustrations of Ibatoulline add to and amplify this work to make it a gift that is even easier to give. Who wouldn't want to give The Giver as a gift? The Giver is the first in the trilogy of books that includes Gathering Blue and The Messenger. This is not their first collaboration as Lowry's text met Ibatoulline's illustration in the picture book Crow Call published by Scholastic in Fall 2009.Read more
