This week my teaser lines come from the 2014 Newbery Medal winner, Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo -- one of the books I'm planning to read for the 2016 Newbery Reading Challenge. This snippet is from page 82 of the hardback edition:
Ulysses sat up straighter in his Bootsie Boots shoe box. He looked at Tootie. He nodded.I don't really know what's going on there -- I haven't actually read any of the book yet. But I love the idea of a squirrel poet.
"I was moved by your poetry," said Tootie to the squirrel.
I've been in a bit of a reading "slump" since the beginning of this year. Well, actually more than a bit -- only finished two books in January, and haven't been able to settle down and do any reading at all in February. But I've found that reading children's books is usually a very good way to get myself going again. So, I have high hopes for the rest of the month.
