Taste Testing Tuesdays (54)


Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!  Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
On the menu this week ... two new titles that I've only just begun, but hey...so far, so good and both are SO CUTE!  Care for a taste?  Wish granted!

When the sun ducked behind a cloud though, I could see that under all the makeup she was wearing her face was wrinkled like a prune. 
She was old, but she walked with pride, like she was important and she knew it and she knew that everyone else knew it too.
-- pg 13, Toto's Tale by K.D. Hays & Meg Weidman
This is such a cute book!  Think The Wizard of Oz but from Toto's viewpoint.  Creative and fun so far....
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
After our morning's lessons we sometimes get to do something fun instead of Ted going to work right away at his desk.  One day we put in a new dog door since Merle's door was so old and the flap was torn from having been used so much.  That Merle, now there was a dog who liked to go in and out.
-- pg 94, Pukka:  The Pup After Merle by Ted Kerasote
 
You may or may not recognize the author, but this is the same gentleman that wrote the touching story Merle's Door.  Pukka is the puppy that came into his life after Merle's time...sounds like a touching and potentially smile filled book indeed if I do say so myself and there are SO MANY adorable pictures in it too!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
*Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR.* 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 
Until next time....happy reading!

Ahhh...love the doggies! Plus, The Wizard of Oz was my all time favorite movie in my youth. Once, when the color on our TV went out I turned to my mom and said, "Mom, they must be in Kansas now!" I kid you not, it's one of the most hilarious stories from my youth. LOL Would love to read Toto's side of the story! :o)
