"What We Like"

Essentially Odd is a catalog of the products available at the 826 Stores nationwide.

Some of you may know the 826 Stores from seeing the Pirate Supply Store at 826 Valencia. If you do, and even if you don't, this book will tell you all about the seven locations of the 826 Stores. You can get a Secret Identity Kit at the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co or Caveman Candy at the Echo Park Time Travel Mart.

Nearly as much fun as being there in person, the kid in you will delight in the "neato-ness" of the products as much as the adult in you appreciates the humor.

Brainchild of the Dave Eggers and the folks at 826 Valencia, the 826 Stores are part of 826 National, a nonprofit tutoring, writing, and publishing organization with locations in eight cities across the country. Their goal is to assist students ages six to eighteen with their writing skills, and to help teachers get their classes excited about writing.

"What We Like" features weekly recommendations from Excelsior staff and patrons for Library books, music, movies and audiobooks that we think you might like. If you have something you want to recommend, drop by and let us know!
