Yes, it was actually inspired by our extremely energetic dog, very unlike the dog in the book. I noticed one day that she heard the words "Good dog!" most often when she (finally) calmed down and went to sleep. She would then give us this confused look, wondering how she could possibly be a good dog for napping. Despite our energy levels being out of sync most of the time, we loved her oh so very much.

I loved this well-researched and yet imaginative historical fiction YA novel. I learned a lot about the time period, which I was not familiar with, and I enjoyed getting to know the main characters. While there are certainly dark and serious themes t ...more

“In this world, we are not perfect. We can only do our best.” —Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah”
Laurie Ann Thompson, Emmanuel's Dream: The True Story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah

“Social entrepreneurs are not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry.”
Bill Drayton, Leading Social Entrepreneurs Changing the World

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
Anne Frank, Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex: A Collection of Her Short Stories, Fables, and Lesser-Known Writings

“Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. It's in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that... there are many kinds of magic, after all.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

“Good and evil are a great deal more complex than a princess and a dragon . . . is not the dragon the hero of his own story?”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
