Willow: A book character from the Out Of Time Series
I found a surprise in my mailbox the other day. Something arrived in the mailbox all the way from America! I was really not expecting it. I knew the author Nadine Brandes was sending out some tiny bookmarks to a few random fans and friends of hers who are also part of her street team, I never expected to get one. But I did.
The funny thing was that my sister and I had raced to the mailbox because we were expecting a book (The Ghostfaces by John Flanagan). I was already outside when the mail lady put the mail in there, so I got there first and grabbed the book, then I reached in to grab all the rest of the letters and I saw among the other boring letters the words Nadine Brandes above the return address. My sister grabbed the book out of my other hand (it was her book anyway) so we were both happy, me stroking a letter and tearing it open and her opening the parcel and smelling the book and flicking through it.
Do you think smelling books is weird? I don't I do it all the time, especially with those few books that just smell so wonderful, If you don't I think you should at least try it a few times, just for me at least.
The character is Willow an albino from a village on the other side of the wall, if you want to know more about the one in the book you will just have to read them.
But my little Willow and I had some adventures in the Australian countryside.
She wanted to check out Australia because after the long cramped journey she wanted to see some sights. Who would not want to? So she climbed some gum trees, and rosemary bushes and fences among other things...
Then we watched the sun set.
Do you like things that are from books?
How about bookmarks, or people from books?
