Awe of course I just adore these characters! I wish to find this type of club 😎
#DogsOfLitsy (for attention)
Chabon is so hit or miss for me. When I love his books, I LOVE them (Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Wonder Boys), but others feel so phoned in (Summerland and this one, unfortunately). This was somehow both overwritten and underdeveloped. Chabon had an aversion to using names (MC was never named), which made it difficult to figure out who was doing/saying what. Blessedly short.
My 3rd Sept #roll100 complete!
And my random doggo at sunset on this King's Birthday (*hork*) public holiday. #dogsoflitsy
A friend donated several books by this author to my class library. They‘re fairly short middle grade reads that I hope will interest some of my more reluctant rural readers. The author starts with a lot of relatable small town details. The main character manages to see and is hoping to shoot the local legend of a turkey. Yet, in the end, it‘s much more a story of family and forgiveness, even quoting a single Bible verse, than a hunting story.
Sorry, gratuitous #dogsoflitsy picture. This picture book could be read to anybody, but the paragraph in the back goes over my head about higher level math that some kids might eat up (I have discalculia). Nominated for the #WCCPBA 2023 I think my students will enjoy it, some are from India and I love to see them represented, you can see their pride shine.
