Welcome back, my fellow creatives! I’ve always been thrilled to see how much my three little Bs love to read, but it makes my heart melt to hear my daughter Blondie say she wants to do a podcast with me to share her favorite books. When I said we could make a little “12 Days of Christmas” style series in December, Blondie whipped through her books and picked twelve for us to study. She even designed our banner with her favorite fantasy creature. x
So here we are! I’m blessed to have such amazing kindred spirits in my life, and I am so very blessed to have a daughter who loves storytelling as much as I do.
On the tenth day of Blondie’s Books, my daughter gave to me:
What does a reader experience in those opening pages, and what lessons can a writer take away in studying but a few paragraphs? Let’s find out!
Why did you pick this book, Blondie?
I picked it at first because I liked other books Gordon Korman did, like Notorious, which is another good dog mystery. And the Unteachables was another good one with lots of funny and heartwarming parts. This one was no exception. It was funny and serious at the same time! I normally like fantasies more than realistic fiction, but I gotta say, this book is just as good!
Stay tuned for more storytellin’ and carol-singin’!
Read on, share on, and write on, my friends!
Merry Christmas to you and your little Bs, Jean!
It’s been awhile since I’ve dropped by and I’m so glad I did today, what a sweetly festive post…I hope you all have a very Happy Christmas filled with lots of words and joy!
Merry Christmas girls. Another great post.
This title reminded me to ask if you have ever read anything by Paul Jennings?
What a highly educational video!
And fun, of course 🙂
Hawklad loves this book cover, another one we are looking out for now. Can’t thank you enough for bringing so many smiles this Christmas. This is such an awesome series.
Sounds like a pretty interesting read…
