This is more than just a book of short stories. It's an assemblage of writing styles, including realistic fiction and non-fiction, poems, interviews, letters of complaint, even a play, and more. It's written by an attention-to-detail author who has a varied reading appetite. Currently Mr. Haviland is co-reading Katherine Applegate's book, Crenshaw, about a 10-year old boy named Jackson and his imaginary, super-sized cat friend, Crenshaw, and Peeling the Onion, a much more highbrow, literary memoir by Günter Grass. Talk about two ends of the spectrum! A 4th grader at heart, you will enjoy Mr. Haviland's storytelling abilities. You won't want to put this book down, but when life intervenes and you have to let go of it, you'll want to get back to it ASAP.
