Top 3 Book Recs | Ethan Aldridge


[MUSIC] Hello, my name is Ethan Aldridge. I’m the author and illustrator of Estranged, and here
are my top three book recommendations. [MUSIC] So the first one is the Spiderwick
Chronicles, by Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi. They’re a wonderful fantasy series about
siblings who move to upstate New York into an old house. And find that It is haunted by
an escortment of goblins and fairies. I loved it because it really triggered my
imagination of having fairies in a modern setting, outside of a fairytale, and
just in a place where cell phones and cars exist. [MUSIC] The second book is the Lion, the Witch and
the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis. This book really captured my
imagination as a child and in fact Edmund Carter the protagonist from
my book is named after Edmund Pevensie, one of the protagonists from that book. [MUSIC] Third book is The Evil Wizard Smallbone
by Delia Sherman. It’s just wonderful book about a boy who ends up becoming sort of trapped in
bookshop owned by an evil wizard. It’s a wonderful book that really for
me captured this feeling of coziness and home and magic in a very small
close home like setting.
