Hello, Mr. Dodo! | Nicholas John Frith

4 🌟
This book was really cute. It‘s about a girl who finds dodo bird and makes it her best friend. But one day, her secret slips out and the entire town comes to see the extinct bird. She will have to be quick thinking to fool this crowd. The illustrations are old school. They remind me of children‘s books from the 60‘s with their lines, and the colors. It‘s wonderful to see an artist aping the classics in modern stories.

cathysaid And now I want a Dodo. And an emu. 4mo

4.5⭐️

This book is about what happens when a black ops agency of the US government decides that they need to use time travel to bring back magic for the benefit of the country. With our main characters of Mel (aka Stokes) and Tristian, you get to experience the authors' takes on a wide range of historical events, cultures, languages and more!

Schnoebs @julesG it literally took me twice as long to read the last 45 pages as it should have because I just kept rereading the scenes between Tristan and Stokes and how happy he was to have her back and I just could take it 😍😭🙈 (edited) 8mo
Schnoebs @Birdsong28 I think I‘m going to use in #52booksin52 as an author you‘ve never heard of before 8mo
Birdsong28 @Schnoebs Sounds good to me! 😁📚📖 8mo

julesG Mel could tell just how happy he was. That scene was sooo predictable and yet so cute. 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG I knew it was coming but that didn‘t stop me from giggling like a school girl and reading over again because of how cute they are. I‘m pretty sure they are one of the most realistic couples I‘ve ever read about 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG also, if you didn‘t read my review on goodreads, the authors put out a series of short entries on the Bound App (including the sexual harassment policy for DODO) 8mo
julesG They are! No insta-love + my place, or yours. I really liked it. 8mo
julesG I'm going to check Bound App. Also, the ending left the door slightly ajar, they could follow up with some stories. 8mo
julesG Not an Android app yet. 😞 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG so how did you feel about the Grainne becoming the bad guy even though she was really trying to just save magic? 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG also if you‘re interested we could buddy read the book I just started. Up to you if you‘d like, no pressure 8mo
julesG I had a feeling that Grainne would try something like this. She being a wender, I expected her to piece the bits of information together and use it to her advantage. I found the whole Magnus-Grainne thing funny and, I have to admit, I expected them to work together on a slightly different plan. I was astonished that G managed to get Erzebet to support her project, since both were wary of each other at first. 8mo
julesG I was also astonished that Magnus caught on. Not being magical at all this was interesting. Erzebet made sense in the end, though. Given who cast the anti-aging spell. 8mo
julesG How far into Lady Trent are you? I might be able to catch up. 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG I‘m not too shocked about the Erzebet cooperation just because of how bad DODO was treating her for years. I couldn‘t believe how they just treated her like an object the entire time and wouldn‘t even call her by her name. One thing that I did wish happen was that Stokes would have talked to her about it after she got Homed and apologized for how things turned out 8mo
julesG @Schnoebs you are right. They treated her poorly. Although Stokes and Rebecca tried their best. As for apology, Stokes still didn't know that it was E's mother who cast the spell. 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG true but I was thinking more about how she saw her and realized how happy she used to be and how the time waiting for them in the 21st century really took a toll on her 8mo
julesG Yeah! I was wondering whether Erzebet had wanted children and then decided against having any. I'd like to know more about her long life. How did she earn money? And who the heck is her lover??? 😁 I guess I'd resent Stokes and DODO just as much after all that happened. On the other hand, I wish I could live 200 years. I might actually get through my TBR pile. 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG or your tbr just gets even longer lol 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG also, I only just started to book yesterday at work, so I‘m only about 25 pages in 8mo
julesG Challenge accepted. 😁 8mo

Going to an early allergy appointment and probably the only time I‘m going to have for some fun reading today 😭

@julesG I‘m at the point where the first couple of debriefing reports on the Constantinople DEDEs are coming in.

#buddyread #sfftbrchallenge #dodo #publictransit #mpls #twincities

julesG Good luck with the appointment. I finished the book this morning. Enjoy the Constantinople DEDEs 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG omg Tristian accidentally became a canonized saint 😂😂😂 oh course this would happen 8mo
julesG When Magnus mentioned the namesake I smelled the rat, but definitely didn't expect sainthood. I laughed so hard. 8mo

Just started this chunkster last night but because I was so tired I barely got 20 pages in. If anyone has this on their shelves for a while and want to read it with me let me know! I‘m already excited to get further into this 😍

julesG Me! Me! I have the audiobook and the ebook. Immersion reading here I come! 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG yes!!!! I can‘t wait for this book. Don‘t know how quickly I‘ll read it but man I‘m excited. Hopefully school won‘t keep me too busy lol 8mo
julesG Hopefully my kids let me read. This week seems to be crazy. First my son had two days off, tomorrow my daughter has a day off school. I have to fight for some reading time. Also, will answer your email. Friday is my big "no appointments" day. 8mo
Schnoebs @julesG no rush lol. Life is life and doesn‘t allow us to have all the free time we want lol 😂 8mo

The Dodo in Alice is disposed to represent the author In real life Charles Dodson. So for this challenge I chose Dana Simpson and her creation of Heavenly Nostrils the unicorn. Dana says on her twitter feed frequently that she is a unicorn and I‘m all for it.
