Bookish Advent Calendar - Day Twenty!
I noticed a lack of middle grade on my calendar. It's probably because I lived in the library at that age and I couldn't afford many books. Going through what I have now, I think Cardcaptor Sakura would make a great gift for a more mature middle grade reader. It's the story of Sakura, a girl tasked with capturing escaped magical cards. It's my favourite manga series of all time, and if there's a young anime fan in your family, they will love Sakura. The artwork is simply gorgeous, and the story is lovely.
