books that do more than sit on the shelf

Lately, teen book publishers have been thinking outside the regular book format. Here are a few that have recently caught my eye:

The Space Between Trees by Katie Williams (the cover is laser cut)


Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (the picture of the open book is printed with green ink and can be found on Stiefvater’s site ).


Cathy’s Book: If Found Call (650)266-8233 by Sean Stewart (open the book and find evidence and interactive phone numbers the reader can call)


 Operation Red Jericho and Operation Storm City by Joshua Mowll (the pages unfold to reveal diagrams and “confidential material”)
