Teaser Tuesdays: The Children's Book

This week, my teaser lines come from The Children's Book, by A.S. Byatt. I've had this one for quite a while now and finally decided to jump in. It's a chunkster (nearly 700 pages), so I'm sure I'll be reading it for a long, loooong time. And since I've just now opened the book for the first time, I really don't know anything about this snippet, except that it appears on page 89:
Tom looked into his book. The story had advanced a page or two. A group of seekers were descending a dark tunnel -- they were the shadowless hero, a gold lizard the size of a terrier with garnet eyes, and a transparent, jellylike formless being who poured along the ground and constantly changed shape.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. An interesting teaser.


  2. Interesting snippet to just happen across. I assume the actual story is about Tom, not the seekers.

  3. Sounds like an interesting read. Good luck getting through it! My teaser: One For the Money

  4. What fun to open a book and have magical things happen. Sounds like a good book for adults and children.

  5. I started this one and got distracted. Need to get back to it too.

  6. That's quite a group of adventurers!

    I'm catching up from being away. Here's my TT: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/11/teaser-tuesdays_23.html


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
