Sunday!

Snappsy the Alligator is a bit of a homebody, a bit of an introvert, and he likes it that way.

So what happens when a narrator wants to spice things up?

Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book) explores the idea of what happens when Snappsy is trying to have a boring, normal day but the narrator thinks that the story needs to be better than a mere tale about a boring, normal day.

If you are a bit of a homebody, a bit of an introvert, and you like it that way, you will enjoy this book immensely and if you have a kiddo in your life who is a bit of a homebody and a bit of an introvert and they are exploring the whole “is it okay for me to like it this way?” thing, this book will very much sing to them.

The sequel explores the concepts touched on in the first book and explores them a little bit more. Snappsy the Alligator and His Best Friend Forever (Probably) deals with Bert the Chicken, Snappsy’s friend who wants to do a lot of fun stuff with Snappsy. Snappsy, however, is a bit of a homebody, a bit of an introvert, and he likes it that way.

The story explores the whole “sometimes you have friends even though you don’t particularly want them” dynamic that plagues those who are a bit of a homebody, a bit of an introvert, and they like it that way.

Charming stories that read easy and have surprising depth (though can easily just be read on the surface as funny stories about an alligator who just wants to be a homebody).

So… what are you reading and/or watching?

  1. The Wife went out of town last night (wine tasting with girlfriends) so I was Unsupervised for the night. So, for the first time in probably 25 years, I sat and watched Apocalypse Now. My god is it good. The use of light and color is almost magical. Anyone who says that digital is a worthy replacement for film is out of their mind.

    Reading Lafcadio Hearn ghost stories, sort of a late Halloween thing.

  2. I finished reading I Am Algonquin. Good enough that I’ll order the next book in the trilogy via ILL fairly soon.

    Now reading an A.A. Gill collection, I think it’s the last of his books I haven’t read yet, which is kind of depressing since he’s deceased. Sigh. It’s rather good, too.

    Picture book of the week is Viva, Frida! by Yuyi Morales, which I was expecting to be a biography of Frida Kahlo but is actually more of a dreamscape about her, with handcrafted stop-motion puppets. Stunning.

  3. I’m reading What Are You Looking At? by Will Gompertz which is a history of modern art from the Impressionists to Tracey Emin.

    I am also reading the Salerton Trilogy by Robertson Davies.

    I’ve been on a book buying binge recently. Recent purchases include The Story of the Jews: Volume II by Simon Schama, Fin De Siecle France by Eugene Weber, Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan, the second volume of Mike Wallace’s history of NYC.
