#LetsTravelAugust Day 11: This wordless picturebook definitely has a #FantasySetting. There is much to savor here – and there are tiny details that the reader can immerse herself in: visual codes and clues and narrative told through exquisite artwork. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-8Dh

OriginalCyn620 How cool! 6d

“For others, the lure of a world where they fit is too great to escape, and they will spend the rest of their lives rattling at windows and peering at locks, trying to find the way home.”

Targeted by human hunters, dairnes are on the brink of extinction. Byx seems to be the last of her species, but there are legends of others. Can Byx and her newfound friends evade those who threaten them and find out the truth?

This is an engaging story that carried my children and me through a long road trip. And it passes the Bechdel Test! (If you allow for conversations in which one female isn't human.)

This pirate is on a quest for his family‘s heirloom peg leg! Arrr matey!

smilingshelves Funny story about this book - I took my fourth graders on a field trip to the state Capitol every year. The tour guide usually gives me an activity book for each of them, which I put in my backpack for the day and pass out when we get home. One year, they gave me copies of this book! 20 hardcover picture books to lug around all day!😩 3w
CrowCAH @smilingshelves oh wow 😮 that backpack became heavy very quickly! “Me sympathies my friend, you have no manner of luck at all.”-pirate sprung from jail in Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl. 3w

This little novel (and a ton of crunchy snacks) helped us through nine hours in the rental car today. We're finishing it up in our jammies in the hotel room.

Crazeedi That's quite a travel day! Good thing you had a book to help pass the time! 3w
ImperfectCJ @Crazeedi It certainly was a marathon of a road trip! It's the longest I've done in one stretch just me and my kids. Luckily, they're phenomenal road-trippers. :-) 3w

I really, really, want to read this Hobb series again. It's been so long and I loved it so much back in the day when I originally read it.

I haven't even read her newest trilogy, Fitz and The Fool, yet, cuz I want to start back at the beginning first. I have them...they're sitting on my shelf taunting me...I just gotta get to them. 😅

@CrowCAH

rretzler I‘m currently reading it for the first time and loving it. Next up for me is 3w
Sweetkokoro I‘m so confused on where to start this series. I own the Fitz and The Fool Trilogy but I keep getting mixed information on where to start. It‘s driving me crazy. 3w

GrilledCheeseSamurai @Sweetkokoro Start with the Farseer trilogy. The first books is called Assassins Apprentice. 👍 3w
CrowCAH I have Hobbs on the TBR; the Ship of Magic! 3w
Sweetkokoro Thank you so much, everyone else‘s answers were always all over the place, this helps a ton! 3w
vivastory @Sweetkokoro I read Assassin's Apprentice this week & I LOVED it. It's very different from other modern fantasy. 3w
