Phantom Tollbooth is another one of my favorites–can’t believe I didn’t mention it! I love the Humbug so much.
And if you like The Wednesday Wars, there’s a sequel called Okay For Now that follows Doug and a new book I haven’t read yet called Just Like That about Meryl Lee.
Glad to meet someone else who’s heard of The Twenty-One Balloons. It seems rather obscure, but it is so good!

Cool! I like the Wordsnatcher. *laughs*
Ooh, I have heard of the one about Doug, I bet it is sad. I will have to check both of those out!January 28, 2021 at 9:53 pm #124390
Really? That’s weird, I didn’t realize that. But it’s so good! Where did you hear of it and read it? I’m homeschooled and it was part of the curriculum.

The Wordsnatcher was so clever! I also like the Triple Demons of Compromise.
Okay For Now is sadder than The Wednesday Wars, but is still hopeful. I highly recommend it.
I heard of The Twenty-One Balloons from my homeschool curriculum too! I think I ended up reading it before I had to do it for school because I was so intrigued by it.

Greetings, Emily! I’m Rose, nice to meet you!
I’m an INFJ too! Do you have a current WIP, or are you between projects? I’d love to hear about your WIP!

That’s great! What curriculum do you use? We use Sonlight.

I’m in the middle of a trilogy, editing the first book and drafting the second. It’s about the princess of a nomadic tribe whose older brother, the king, is captured by an enemy tribe in an attack, and she has to rescue him before he’s killed or it turns into a war. I love writing my MC, Liorah, she’s delightfully sassy.
I’d love to hear your concept if you’d like to share it!

I use a lot of different curricula, but I use Memoria Press for literature. I’ve heard good things about Sonlight, and all the reading seems a plus.

I’ve never heard of that one, though I’ve only heard of a few of the main, well known curriculums.
Ya, I love Sonlight, and the reading is like the best part of it! All of my siblings and I learned to love reading relatively young because of all the awesome books they give us to read, and it just makes school more enjoyable. And it’s not like we’re just reading chapter books all the time for school, so we learn things too. 😉 Haha, that’s what some people think of when I say we use that. Lol

Neat! Sassy characters are fun.
My mind always draws a blank when I try to describe the story, but here are a few words from my word board:
child, gray, journey, forest, king, love, lies, scars, work, crowsFebruary 6, 2021 at 3:36 pm #124660
