Inkies Giveaway - Spotlight on The Emerald Tablet and The Unnameables


Today I want to spotlight two Inkies books that are a part of
Basket 2: ADVENTURE AND WITCHCRAFT
 

Benjamin and his best friend Andy love being different from the other kids. They like being able to read each others minds and use their telekinesis to play tricks. In fact, they are getting set to spend their entire summer doing just that when Benjamin s mirror starts talking. Suddenly, he s looking at eight weeks of summer school someplace that can only be reached by a teleporter hidden in his hallway. And the summer only gets stranger.

At school, Benjamin discovers that he isn t really human but something called a telegen. It turns out that the powers he always thought made him special only make him normal. But then the mysterious Emerald Tablet chooses him as its champion, and all chances of a uneventful (well, as uneventful as summer school on a hidden, submerged continent can be) disappears.
 

Medford lives on a neat, orderly island called, Island.
Islanders like names that say exactly what a thing (or a person) is or does. Nothing less. Islanders like things (and people) to do what their names say they will. Nothing more.
In fact, everything on Island is named for its purpose, even the people who inhabit it. But Medford Runyuin is different. A foundling, he has a meaningless last name that is just one of many reminders that he's an outsider. And, to make matters worse, Medford's been keeping a big secret, one that could get him banished from Island forever.
When the smelliest, strangest, unruliest creature Island has ever seen comes barreling right into his rigid world, Medford can't help but start to question the rules he's been trying to follow his entire life.
A whimsical fantasy debut about belonging, the dangers of forgetting history, and the Usefulness of art, "The Unnameables" is one of the funniest stories of friendship you'll ever read, with a cast of characters you'll never forget.
 
I haven't had the chance to read either of these, but they both sound really good. If you'd like the chance to win both of these books or 22 others, then visit the First Annual Inkies Giveaway Extravaganza 
 
Good luck!!

It was no problem at all. The contest is awesome and after looking into your books, I definitely think I'm going to pick up the first one. I read the Percy Jackson series and I really enjoyed that and this series sounds like it's in the same vein, so I'll have to check it out.
