Frosted Co. Harry Potter Cookie Cutters ($6): Two small cutters shaped like Harry’s signature spectacles and birthmark.
These appear to be 3D printed so you can’t wash them in the dishwasher, but that was clearly marked.
Books are Magical Greeting Cards: Share a kind word with a friend and proclaim your love of literature.
The Sun is Also a Star Temporary Tattoo: This temp tattoo goes with this month’s selection! I love the way it matches the cover art of the book.
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon ($11.36): This 2016 National Book Award Finalist is a modern story of star-crossed lovers. It examines identity, race, and fate through the prism of two young New Yorkers from very different worlds.
It was signed by the author, New York Times #1 Best Seller Nicola Yoon.
Nicola Yoon grew up in both Jamaica and New York, and her upbringing shows in the depth and realism she creates in her characters.
The dust jacket was slightly crinkled at the bottom.
