I began looking through a box of newly-arrived books, and grabbed a few to take home and read. One of them, the first in a series, is a must-read for any kid who loves fantasies heavily spiced with humor. I haven’t even finished it yet, but it’s too good to postpone sharing until I turn the last page.

My favorite quote of the day: “Babies are born with the instinct to speak, the way spiders are born with the instinct to spin webs. You don’t need to train babies to speak; they just do. But reading is different.”— Steven Pinker
