My first intentionally-about-animal-themed-books post is about David Wroblewski’s The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. It’s a terrific book! It has everything: it’s historical fiction; it’s about living with a disability; it has a murder mystery; it’s got a supernatural component; it’s set in what sounds like a very pretty part of Wisconsin; it has possibly the best boy-dog friendships since…ever; and, best of all, it’s about human-animal communication!! 295 more words

In which I don't tell the story of Edgar Sawtelle.

Summer, as we’ve previously discussed, can be good for all kinds of reading, depending on your taste and your mood. Obviously, it’s perfect for perusing lovely, summery picture books. 226 more words

Brief(ish) Thoughts On A Book

I can’t remember when exactly I sat down with The Story of Edgar Sawtelle and first began to read. I know it was bitterly cold outside, and very snowy, so it could have been anywhere between Christmas and April. 852 more words
