Fabulous
The Prince and the Dressmaker - Jen Wang

And no, I'm not being facetious, I loved this thing.

 

I loved the expressive faces (specially Frances' on-going bemused into blank ones), the colorful tone, the hilarious hijinks and of course, the over all theme of acceptance.

 

To all that, I add three awesome scenes: the devil's wench, Juliana meeting Crystallia, and the King's outfit. I hooted and laughed so much I almost fell from my chair.

 

If I got a lump in my throat from the deep love of every type involved in all of it, well...

American family meets gothic English ghost
The Canterville Ghost - Oscar Wilde,Inga Moore

The ghost looses. Outrageously.

 

Quick and hilarious. Drama queen ghost, terror twins, painter mary-sue (*snigger* that paint chat, lol), prepared big brother (stain remover in his pocket?) and practical American Minister, it was all fun. Hands down, the theatrical haunting anecdotes were where I would invariably erupt in barks of laughter.

 

I take one star for change of tone, and because it felt like the denouement was too long in comparison with the rest.

 

But I so have to buy this one.

Oh, look what you've done
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

20 min to read (ten extra than needed because I kept scratching my eyes and sniffing from the apples bit on), double that and the kettle on the stove to calm down.

 

I have too many mixed feelings about this, whether it should be so, how I feel about the boy, that end, whether it's enough, whether it's ok, and a million other things that I can't even believed were digged up by an itty-bitty book. I just know that it played hell on my emotions and I'm still blubbering.

 

I also know I might have put it under a taste's-like-diabetes tag if I'd read it on a cynical mood. That I might have been angry or ambivalent. It's weird. I have more words skittering around my brain than those written inside those pages. I have to toast a book that causes such an internal havoc.

Zanny hodgepodge
Fortunately, the Milk - Neil Gaiman,Skottie Young

This one is a fast, fun read. The pictures add a lot to the laughter inducing ride too. And I loved some of the reference zings.
