Something Wicked, Alan Gratz

October 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Today is the first day of the Something Wicked tour! Becky at Becky’s Book Reviews starts off the tour discussing Macbeth. One of the reasons I love this tour is that I learn stuff from all the brilliant bloggers. My favorite children’s librarian, Noel, didn’t care for the sex in the book. I wasn’t bothered, […]
