It's Monday! What are you reading? 10/22/12
Jen and Kellee host a weekly meme called "What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA." It encourages you to share what you read during the previous week and to plan what you're going to read/review during the current week. Thank you, Kelly and Jen, for hosting this fun meme.
Let's pretend "Ally Reads" emailed me the following note:
Dear Mr. Schu,
We are friends on Twitter and Goodreads. I saw that you read As the Crow Flies. What's your favorite illustration? What's your favorite line?
Dear Ally Reads,
Thank you for your email about As the Crow Flies. My favorite illustration takes up two pages. It shows a crow eating out of a dog's bowl. It includes the lines "Did the dog's food disappear? This pooch knows that we've been here. Meanwhile, you don't have a clue: We've got our bird's eye trained on you."
My favorite line is near the end of the book. "We were the birds we didn't see--now hear this cawcophony!"
