So sorry faithful readers that this Teaser is up so late today, but my home is full of germs. Fortunately, I don’t believe they can travel across the Internet.
So while those around me are hacking and sneezing into their elbows, I have been enjoying Kate DiCamillo’s The Magician’s Elephant. If the name seems familiar, you might remember it from one of the most enchanting stories ever written, The Tale of Desperaux which was made into a delightful film, but the book is so much better.
“So,” said Peter softly to himself. “it must be true mustn’t it? There is an elephant now, so the fortuneteller was right, and my sister lives.”

There you can read the entire first chapter and look at some of the lovely artwork of Yoko Tanaka.
Enjoy and give it to a child you love.
