“The Trip” is less than two weeks away. It seems a bit daunting. I have one week of work and a few days of non work before we are off! There is some freaking out on my part. I have two projects to finish, and Steph is coming tonight to visit so I will not be inclined to put in long hours. Not to mention all the stuff we are trying to get done before our trip.
Another thing I am trying to wrap up is some books I have started. I just finished another Lloyd Alexander book The Gawgon and the Boy.
In this book Lloyd Alexander departs from his usual formula, sort of. There is a boy, but no young heroine. In a way there is a heroine…the Gawgon. It is a story about a boy peri-depression era who get sick, and his dream comes true he gets out of school. But then gets stuck with his great aunt as a tutor. She is old, stuffy and someone learns to love learning. Anyway I loved it. It was imaginative, clever and I would read it again. It follows “The Boy” through the crash of the stock market.
