“...my name is growing all the time, and I‘ve lived a long, long time; so my name is like a story.” I love Treebeard. He is probably one of my favorite characters.

Tianarose I just saw this quote on a bookish Facebook group too! Maybe I need to read these again! 3w

1880s jokes! Many of his pictures have small little jokes in them. I enjoyed seeing the art that inspired the Caldecott Award creation.

Such beautiful illustrations in a beautifully written kids book. I love how the author wove Chinese folklore into her story.

I struggled with this book.She wrote very intense scenes which were okay. However, everything else was so poorly done. She switched POVs without notice in the same paragraph and would randomly stick Spanish words into her sentences in a way that did not flow. It was poorly written. Don‘t even get me started on the racism. The thing that gets me the most is that the author is quoted saying that she is not responsible for her cultural blind spots.

ozma.of.oz Yikes! That is disappointing. I had put this on my TBR list months ago, I think I‘ll remove it now. 1mo
Professional_Book_Dragon I know! I had added it awhile ago too and really wanted to like it but I just couldn‘t. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :( 1mo
Alliterati I just looked this book up online after seeing your review... yeah, the publisher has already pulled two of the author speaking events due to backlash. Youch. 1mo

she.epeolatry Welp... you tried. I feel like I‘ve read everything “about” this book and that‘s probably the most educational and entertaining thing about it .... the more important story it tells about publishing, racism, contemporary versus literary fiction, privilege, the economics of creativity, etc. 2w
Professional_Book_Dragon @she.epeolatry amen to that! I hope we learn and correct 2w

I really enjoyed this book. There was so much irony and deadpan humor. I felt like I knew the town and all the characters- I was invested. One that you miss once you‘re done with it.

BarbaraJean That‘s such a great way of describing this book—I finished it a couple of weeks ago, and I miss it! 1mo

Loved,loved this book! I can‘t wait for the next in, what I‘m assuming will be Leigh Bardugo‘s next duology. I loved how conflicted and complex Alex was! The atmosphere that Bardugo created was fantastic! It was hard to put down!

I really loved this book! It took me awhile to finish because of the chaos of the holidays, but it was so beautifully written. I love the way Coates writes. It really focuses on the importance of remembering our stories and even embracing them.

Worth reading both for the art and the quick wisdom inside to begin a mindfulness practice. Teens and adults would enjoy this title.
