  3. Those random bits of wisdom you run into in literature are priceless. And MG is full of them!

  4. I think I've read every book by Kate di Camillo. This is a wonderful quote. And I agree with Barbara that MG is full of bits of wisdom. Another wonderful writer is Jane Langton.

    1. Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for stopping by on a holiday. Good for you for reading all of Kate's books. I've yet to read The Tiger Rising, but I've read all her others.

      Yes, yes! Jane Langton. I adore the entire sequence of the Hall Family Chronicles, but especially The Diamond in the Window and The Fledgling.

  7. This book is one of my favorites, as is its author. We must be on the same wavelength: I've included it as part of one of my Wonderful Weirdos of Literature Series posts later this month :-)
