Reading progress update: I've read 112 out of 408 pages.
The Invisible Eye - Alexandre Chatrian,Émile Erckmann,Erckmann-Chatrian,Hugh Lamb

reading 'The Wild Huntsman', which is more of a novella than a short story. the length of this tale is allowing me to become more involved in what is going on within the dynamic of old Honeck, the granddaughter Louise, and the young artist who has suddenly shown up and stayed with them - he also being the narrator. obviously, something creepy occasionally makes its presence known near Honeck's isolated abode...

the last two stories I read in this book - ‘The White and the Black’, and ‘The Burgomaster in Bottle’ - were entertaining, though the second one represents a recurring nitpick I have: more could have been done with a nifty idea. but most of the tales are quick, and don’t get a reader as interested in the characters and their supernatural dilemmas as would a more modern treatment of the same premise, or - in terms of stories roughly as old - say, something by Poe or Le Fanu, etc.

just finished ‘The Owl’s Ear’, which I think I liked better than the lead-off tale, ‘The Invisible Eye’. I’m happy to see there will be some variety here, but how many of these odd stories will I actually love? and will there be a burgomaster in every one? these are the questions...

The Invisible Boy - Trudy Ludwig,Patrice Barton

The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig is about a young boy that feels like he's invisible within his classroom. Nobody ever talks to him. Frankly, it's like he doesn't even exist within the same world. One day, the boy decides to do something nice for one of his classmates, and that is when he starts to feel visible finally. I think this book is an excellent representation of how many students might feel during various points in their school life. I would read this book and make students write about how they can make sure nobody in our classroom feels invisible.

the first story in The Invisible Eye is...’The Invisible Eye’. I just read it, and it was very bizarre, and I’m not sure how much I liked it. strange magics at work, and I‘m not clear on how turnabout was achieved. anyway, my nerve endings have jangled the message to brain, very early on, that this is going to be a trippy trip, with Erckmann-Chatrian.
