Tuesday Teasers











Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by
MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

The Magician's Elephant; Kate DiCamillo

(p.17)...."How hard bread and strong  teeth and a strong heart were connected was a mystery to Peter, but as Vilna Lutz spoke to him that morning, it became increasingly obvious that the old soldier was once again in the grips of a fever and that not much sense would be gotten from him......Sweat shone on his forehead. His beard was damp."

(I couldn't miss this book as I fell in love with this author's last book, "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane).

What's your teaser this week?

  5. I've heard about this book so I'm so glad your teaser is from it! It's certainly intriguing and I'm curious about both characters. I haven't read anything by this author and am putting her on my TBR list!

  6. I have never heard of this author (but he's not alone in that category)-- one of the reasons this meme is so great.

    Thanks for stopping by the Count and me. This book has been on my shelf for two years. Hope it doesn't take me that long to read it. :)
