Quote of the Day

When children at school talked about the Vivienne Small books, Tuesday never said “My mom wrote them,” even though she sometimes felt she would burst with the effort of keeping it a secret.

Quote of the Day – Wishes, Kisses, and Pigs

Quote of the Day

You took what you had and you took what you knew and what you felt and what you guessed and you mixed them all together, and remembered to look out the window and listen to the birds sing while you were doing it. Plus, it didn’t hurt to count your blessings while you were beating the batter. Louise thought this might be the recipe for the whole world.

Quote of the Day – The Petrified Flesh

Quote of the Day

“You make peace with one sister only to declare war on the other. It’s always like that with peace, isn’t it? Always to someone’s detriment, already sowing the seed for the next war.”

–The Petrified Flesh by Cornelia Funke

Quote of the Day – Beyond the Laughing Sky

Something was still missing. Controlling the plane, Nashville couldn’t help but feel what a conductor must feel using a baton to direct a symphony. But Nashville didn’t want to conduct the music. Nashville wanted to be the music. He wanted to tap-dance across the notes of the page, to visit each black circle on the sheet music like a hummingbird visits each flower. He wanted to fly.

Quote of the Day – The Magic Misfits

“I practice levitation,” Theo said, “As in, making things float in the air. You saw my work earlier today.”

“I love learning about transformation,” Ridley added. She pulled a top hat off a nearby shelf, moved it behind her wheelchair, and when it reappeared it had become a book with a top hat on the cover. “I like to change objects from one to another.”

“And I escape!” Leila said. “Dad, can you please chain me upside down in a tank full of water?”

“I can, and I will – when you turn eighteen,” Mr. Vernon said.

–The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris
