The Magician's Elephant
I tried to read The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo.
I really tried.
I wanted to read it at bedtime with my child, but she wasn't interested.
I tried to read it on my own, but I couldn't force myself to finish the book. I don't see kids enjoying the magical realism, and, more importantly, it just didn't grab me.
I might read it if it wins the Newbery. Or if everyone else on the committee thinks it would be an excellent choice for Joliet Reads. Or if I find myself snowed in without other means of entertainment. That would be if I'm snowed in for weeks.
