"What an AMAZING book!
I loved it!

Fun story line as a caterpillar emerges from his cocoon as a spider-- such a GOOD MESSAGE of "life does not always turn out as planned."

Fantastic scenes as Westly flounders while trying so hard just to fit in--

Westly by Bryan  Beus
"Westly: A Spider’s Tale was an excellent story. I found it to be immediately engaging. Westly a scrawny, ugly little caterpillar was supposed to be the son of the Monarch Butterfly King, but when he emerged from his cocoon, he was not a butterfly..." Read more of this review »

Beautiful stuff!

I am only skimming through it, as it would take a lifetime to absorb it all in.

Lemony Snicket
“A man of my acquaintance once wrote a poem called "The Road Less Traveled", describing a journey he took through the woods along a path most travelers never used. The poet found that the road less traveled was peaceful but quite lonely, and he was probably a bit nervous as he went along, because if anything happened on the road less traveled, the other travelers would be on the road more frequently traveled and so couldn't hear him as he cried for help. Sure enough, that poet is dead.”

“Then the Old Man of the Earth stooped over the floor of the cave, raised a huge stone from it, and left it leaning. It disclosed a great hole that went plumb-down.
"That is the way," he said.
"But there are no stairs."
"You must throw yourself in. There is no other way.”

Ya, I had heard of that. It's unfortunate. However, I suppose that if this world is to have its C.S. Lewis'es and George MacDonalds, it's gotta have its Phillip Pullmans and Douglas Adamses.

I am working right now on a mixed-media graphic novel. There is good news for its eventual market distribution, but I can't announce anything yet.

Genealogy is great! Love it.

Momatella I just can't seem to find time to get my books shelved! I am a slow typist. You have so many that I have loved. (Be aware that the author of the "Golden Compass" series has stated outright, that his purpose is to lead youth away from religion/Christianity.)

I will put that lecture in the mail this weekend. I am up to my eyeballs in genealogy and Family History, plus teaching, reading and writing.

Do you intend to try some screen writing? Or to do an animated film? I took screen writing, but my mind works better in prose and poetry.

Shakirova Брайн-ты молодец-читаешь так много книг-мне нужно поддтянуть свой английский язык и начинать читать эти прекрасные книги!!!
