Perfect shorts for your odd moments !
I find myself wondering just where EMS s world is. The characters whether youngsters or adult seem to be able to fit into the flow of the stories.
Even the gremlins seem well adjusted for living in her world. There s even one who sings (or would we be listening to EMS s singing ?!?!)
The dragon on the front cover appears to be as mystified as the rest of us, looking around at the bemusing sight, as he crosses the threshold leading in to the book.
He sort of has that look like he s going to try to solve what doesn t seem to be correct to his way of thinking. You ve probably have some idea, go into a situation and could swear that you ve been there before, but it looked nothing like this, I bet if you showed up you d have some-being to explore with.
Even having dragons around, I ve just got one, nay, a few questions: Where about is this world? Are they accepting visitors/emigration applicants? I think it sounds like a good interesting retirement place for those of us who don t want to just be a bump on a log.
Emily Martha Sorensen has interesting plots and clever characters. I plan on using her stories to inspire my students’ creativity.
