Quote of the Day – The Wizard of Oz

The sky darkened, and a low rumbling sound was heard in the air. There was a rushing of many wings; a great chattering and laughing; and the sun came out of the dark sky to show the Wicked Witch surrounded by a crowd of monkeys, each with a pair of immense and powerful wings on his shoulders.

–The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum

I can’t resist a story that takes place deep undersea. The strange creatures and surreal settings that exist beneath the waves range from magical and majestic to horrifying and haunting, so there’s plenty of opportunity for surprises!

Question of the Day: Where would you like to have an adventure?

Quote of the Day – Withering-by-Sea

There was a picture of such a serpent in the margin. Stella studied it wistfully. It looked large enough to swallow an elephant, and had a hungry expression. A serpent of that size could easily swallow a person, an Aunt for example, as easily as kiss your hand. Several Aunts, probably. It looked sufficiently hungry.

–Withering-by-Sea, Judith Rossell
