What I'm reading...Summer and Bird, by Katherine Catmull

Summer and Bird, by Katherine Catmull


I'm ten chapters in, reading it out loud, and having the listeners say, "Another chapter, please..." Catmull spins a story out of the four winds, rich in family love and folklore. I've spent many an hour on the edge of a forest; Catmull captures that threshold feeling of possibility that moves this story of two sisters, lost in the woods. She has an uncanny sense -- a bird's eye view of things -- that undergirds this magical tale.


I'll have more to say when I've finished it, but I've read enough to know that I recommend it for your Christmas list.
