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.
