Wacky Wednesday: 04/19/14
I've mentioned this before but it bears repeating; I have a wonderful independent bookshop just down the hill from where I live. They offer a combination of used, new and special orders. One of the advantages of being a frequent customer is that they have come to know my taste in reading as well as that of my family.
On a recent trip with my daughter, Stephanie recommended to her, Wacky Wednesday by Theo LeSeig. Reprints use his better known nom de plume, Dr. Seuss. But they had just gotten in a well-read first edition. The thing with Stephanie — she's NEVER wrong with her recommendations.
The book opens on a Wednesday morning. Very quickly it's apparent that things are not right. As the day progresses, more and more things are off.
The text gives hints to how many things are wacky in each scene. Some are obvious and some take advantage of optical illusion to hide in plain sight.
The book was an instant hit with both of us. Somehow I had missed it in my childhood. On our first day we read through it twice. We've since read through it many more times.
