A Reading Vocation

"I Must Read, Read, and Read. It is my Vocation." - Thomas Merton

This is where I chronicle my reading life.  I also blog about writing at Lacey's Late-night Editing.


Book 29/100: It's Only Stanley by Jon Agee

It's Only Stanley - Jon Agee

A sweet and silly book about a dog who is planning to go to the moon beneath the noses of his family, with a rhyming scheme that is not totally obnoxious. The cat is the best part of each illustration -- her expressions are priceless and sort of reflect any "reasonable" person's response to the goings-on. I wanted the dog's romantic storyline to be a little more fully developed. I think that means I am not the intended audience for picture books. :p
