Dark humorous gruesome full of earnest intents child…

Dark, humorous, gruesome, full of earnest intents, child-pleasing, potentially controversial … book 63 made me ponder and wonder a LOT. As a reader, I devoured the book and its many twists and turns with a high level of delight and often marveled at the narrative voice: how it keeps a great balance of “teaching some wise lessons” and “presenting tales that will just sucker the young readers/listeners in” and how it has that leaping-out-of-the-pages, simply begging to be read aloud and shared quality. I cannot WAIT to read this to my students in the fall.
