The Birthday Ball
Lois Lowry (Goodreads Author)
This is my second Lois Lowry book in a row (and ever) and I can't say I'm impressed. I don't like her sly, absurdist humor, I much prefer fairy tales with more grit and/or glitter and less winking at the audience. Just the ridiculous names of the other kingdoms was enough to turn me off. It made me think of the Phantom Tollbooth, but it doesn't have the charm or the wit to carry it off. I just feel bored.
