library trip...

I went to the Main Library with John's class on Friday, and I was checking on the new releases bookshelf up front. There were many temptations. Kathy Appfelt (author of  The Underneath) has a new book called Keeper that is about mermaids. I also saw a wonderfully illustrated version of Randall Jarrell's story The Bat-Poet-- a favorite story of mine about a bat who can't sleep during the day and ends up observing the daytime creatures and writing poems about them.

  1. Oops. I guess I was in a hurry when I typed the above. The author's name is Kathi Appelt.
