Where have i been?

I don't even know. But i read a lot while i was there. Maybe we should call it lala land. Most recently i finished The One and Only Ivan, this year's winner of the Newbery Medal and a nominee on the Bluebonnet list. Usually animal stories are pretty juvenile. I think in this one, the author imbued the story with enough witty humor and deep themes that it became a sort of ageless story. I was thrilled to learn it was based on a true story. But i must admit surprise to it winning the Newbery; I was so sure Wonder would get it. Hmmmmm.
