Grandmotherly Library Presence
"Conga" Singer's Pooch Inspires Book

Chicken Spaghetti Is Reading...

From time to time, I post a quote from a recent favorite book of ours, one that is notable for its good writing, humor, or sense of fun. Or all three, like this one.

Miss Scales thought that the way some books spread an unfounded fear of dragons was positively inflammatory.

"Books that depict cruelty to dragons should never have been published in the first place."

She got so fired up about this, she didn't just discard the books she didn't like, she incinerated them.   

"Well, that settles it,"  whispered Albert Hoops. "Where there's smoke, there's fire, and that Miss Scales is a real dragon, all right."

from The Library Dragon, by Carmen Agra Deedy, with illustrations by Michael P. White
