Through The Looking Glass

Evening everyone!!!  Tomorrow I will have a review for you, but today I thought I would bring you a Tiny-Tot-Tuesday.

I found this book in a grocery store yesterday (on sale for $6.00 …woohoo!) and thought WOW, what a crazy interesting book.  You have the story, but it is laid out in such a unique way that it makes the book itself into a journey.  Every time you flip the page there are secret letters in these tiny little envelopes for you to pull out and read, maps to explore, hidden treasures to find.  It is not for the tiniest of your children, but if you have a little curious cat around you this one is a fun one to explore.

About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.
