How many of you follow this author on Twitter? I did, but I don't... "interesting" and frequent posts. I would love to hear her speak to gain insight. I'm thinking she's probably eccentric and brilliant. #Newbery2017

LForsythe I just added her on twitter @CWalters -- which led me to perusing her website and learning that she is a former teacher. With her eloquent choice of words, she explained why she left teaching. Check it out... it will speak to you!! 😊 2y
DrSpalding I will check this out as well! 2y
Ehoffman I checked out her website! Great stuff and we all can understand why she left the profession; we fight this daily in our courses. Reading her description of the importance of reading and books reminded me of Donalyn Miller's thoughts/words in the Book Whisperer!! 2y

I also love the puzzle this story has me trying to solve. She's brilliantly confused me with new information--right when I think I'm figuring it out! I'm in love with the Perfectly Tiny Dragon-- he snuck up on my heart!! I would love to share this book in middle school Literature Circles to listen in to their discussions about the author's craft and their predictions.

DrSpalding The dragon is her little love, I hope that nothing happens to him. 2y

Amazing read!! I was reluctant to start this one based on the description but was hooked in the 1st chapter. It has me making predictions, asking questions, making connections and smiling!!

DrSpalding I was reluctant too. This would not be a book I would be drawn to naturally but happy it won so that many that may not have read it, will! 2y
