Reading and writing Children's lit...and then there's the brain stuff
That is a great quote. Thanks for sharing it.
Hi Natalie! Happy Labor Day!
I love Kate DiCamillo. Thank you!
I do too, Myrna. Happy Labor Day!
I love that quote and the reminder that I wanted to read this book... a while ago.Happy Labor Day!~Akoss
It's lovely, Akoss. It has the feel of a timeless fable. Happy Labor Day to you too!
Those random bits of wisdom you run into in literature are priceless. And MG is full of them!
So true, Barbara. I hope you are having a nice holiday.
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.
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.
I love the quote, too. How true it is. I love the cover.
I agree, Janet. That's a stunningly beautiful cover. Thanks for stopping by.
Thanks, Jennifer. Hope you've had a fun holiday.
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 :-)
Ah, that's so cool, Kim! Great minds...
Great quote! This book is on my TBR list! :D
I think you'll enjoy this book, Erik!
Ah, perfect. Love that.
I love this quote. I read this book not too long ago.
Love this. Must read more of her work!!
YAY for comments! I read and appreciate each one and I always try to answer. All opinions welcome. Let's have a conversation!
