I'm glad you are enjoying Wildwood so far. I hope we can enjoy the last few weeks discussing a book we both seem to like.
How are Prue and Curtis different?
Do you trust the Dowager Governess, Alexandra? Why or why not? She seems very nice and kind...
How is this book like other fantasy books you've read? Which other books or series does it remind you of? It reminds me a bit of The Wizard of Oz with how they enter a strange world from their own and how animals talk. It also reminds me of the Narnia series for the same reason. I think it's a little different because in Oz they aren't really rescuing anybody. And Prue and Curtis don't really get along. The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe of the Narnia series has some of these elements.
What has been the best part so far? I like the warren where the coyote soldiers live and work for the governess. I thought that was pretty cool sounding.
THIS IS REALLY FUNNY¨!!!!
READ IT AND post IT 2 YOUR BEST FRIENDS.....
i knew a girl that was so stupid that.......
1. She called me to get my phone number.
2. She spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice box because it said 'concentrate.'
3. She put lipstick on her forehead because she wanted to make up her mind.
4. She tried to put M&M's in alphabetical order.
5. She sent me a fax with a stamp on it.
6. She tried to drown a fish.
7. She thought a quarterback was a refund.
8. She got locked in a grocery store and starved to death.
9. She tripped over a cordless phone.
10. She took a ruler to bed to see how long she slept.
11. She asked for a price check at the dollar store.
12. She studied for a blood test.
13. She thought Meow Mix was a CD for cats.
14. When she heard that 90% of all crimes occur around the home, she moved.
15. When she missed the 44 bus, she took the 22 bus twice instead.
16. When she took you to the airport and saw a sign that said 'Airport Left' she turned around and went home

I liked your thoughts about The Odyssey. I really hoped you enjoyed it. It is such a great story, one of the best ever.
How is the Hobbit so far? Why do you think Bilbo was such an odd choice to be a burglar on this adventure?
Do you think the dwarves even stand a chance? Why does Gandalf believe in them?
Let's try and be a little quicker with the responses...
Well... how did it end? What did you think of the book? Would you recommend it, why or why not?
What was the best part of the whole adventure? I really liked the end when Odysseus meets the suitors. What do you think could happen next if you decided to write a sequel?
What are you planning on reading next?
Which was the most dangerous and why - Circe's island, Aeolus' island, the underworld or the Cyclops? Why?
Odysseus' crew is very loyal. Why? What is it about Odysseus that makes him a good leader? Would you follow him home or try to get home yourself from Troy? Explain.
Talk to you soon,
Did you figure out exactly what Odysseus did to anger the gods? What do you think he should do to please them again? It seems silly that he keeps trying to get home when there is a curse on him. Do you think that he doesn't know that he is not supposed to get home?
Athena is a big fan of Odysseus. Has she helped him at all from the parts you read?
Odysseus is very smart. What tricks or ideas did he use to get out of situations that seemed very bad?
Hope you are enjoying it still,
I was surprised you finished the book already. Which was your favorite chapter? I liked the one with the ghouls and the trip to the ghoul capital at Ghulheim.
Who was your favorite character? I liked Silas. Did you figure out what he was? Think about the clues. What kind of supernatural creature do you think he was?
What was the best thing about living in a graveyard in your opinion? What was the worst part for Bod?
Were you surprised when Jack showed back up? I figured it out literally the sentence before it was revealed. I was really shocked!
What did you decide to read next?
What have you enjoyed about the Graveyard Book so far? Who has been the most helpful to Bod in the graveyard? I think it's Silas. He's a really cool and interesting character.
What do you think the ghosts and other inhabitants of the graveyard will be able to teach Bod? What things would you ask a ghost from the past if you could? What types of powers do you think they have?
How does Bod eat and drink? Where does he sleep? Who is helping him?
What lesson could be learned from reading Holes? Do you think Stanley got what he deserved at the end of the story?
What do you think of the Graveyard Book so far? What questions do you have? I hope you stick with it, I REALLY enjoyed that book.
Keep pushing yourself to add details and think these questions through. I am seeing some big improvements from you but you need to keep pushing.
I must have posted questions for somebody else. Weird - sorry. I know you are reading Holes now.
Do you think Stanley's punishment was fair? What do you think should have been his punishment?
Did Stanley learn anything positive from being at Camp Green Lake? What? What did he have to do to earn the respect of the other campers? Who is your favorite character so far?
What lesson could you learn from the tale of Kissing Kate Barlowe?
