Happy Friday everyone!
Or perhaps it is more accurate to say Happy Black Friday...
Today is the day after Thanksgiving and though our bellies are full of turkey (and/or other yummy goodies) most are still a force to be reckoned with when encountered on the sale floor as they make that crazy early morning mad dash for all the best deals. If you are participating in this crazy fun like me (yep, I'll be out there in the wee hours of the morning too...partially for the sales and also for the tradition of it all), enjoy...and be careful! If not, enjoy the peaceful calm...just don't be jealous of the deals we got that you missed...hehe. Anywho...
Today I am lucky enough to be playing host to a fabulous book tour making its way through the blogosphere right now courtesy of Pump Up Your Book Promotions. It features a reader friendly title, a classic in its own right. It takes place "somewhere over the rainbow" and features a little girl with braided hair and a penchant for gingham. There's lions and tigers and bears...oh my...oh and how could be forget a little dog by the name of....well you know. In fact, he's the star of the book featured today. Without further adieu, today's book of choice is....
This was a great retelling of the story we've grown to love as seen through the eyes of Dorothy's trusted fuzzy friend. Toto is one of those literary characters that is easily recognized and yet his role in the main events was minimal...or so we've been told. The authors of this creative tale give a voice to this much loved character providing, smiles, laughs, and quite the obsession with pork chops. Just try not to smile as you make your way through this adventure...betcha can't.
