Question of the Day: What’s your favorite fantasy series?
Children should learn that reading is pleasure, not just something that teachers make you do in school.
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
If I’m honest, I have to tell you, I still read fairy tales and I like them best of all.
