Welcome to W!

W is for weird. The books I’m sharing with you aren’t weird.

But, at the end of this post, I’ll bring you something weird.

The multicultural books I’m highlighting today are:

Wildfire by Mary Pauline Lowry

Wildfire, a book by my bestie Mary Pauline Lowry, about a female firefighter. Here’s my review.

While We Run by Karen Healy, a super sci fi book from Australia!The characters African expats living down under.This title was one of the books I judged for the CYBILS award.  Here’s my review.

And now for something weird:

I totally would. Had I known it before 🙂
still might.
and weird but true is my son’s “best book ever” 🙂

One of my daughter’s friends is a firefighter and she is strong and brave. I worry about her when the Santa Ana winds begin to blow but I know she can take care of herself out there. I think I’ll get this book for her.
Weird but true food facts looks like fun. I love to learn about strange but true things.

after reading these comments, i think you’ll all appreciate that every time I read the tip about pepper I couldnt stop thinking about Alice in Wonderland and the cook screaming PEPPER!! and the poor baby sneezing.
