One response to “M.G.’s library vacation

  1. I second this. Is just read Professor Lodge’s to me 9 and 11 year olds. They laughed a cried; they want to meet the author and ask her what happened to Wilbur after Lucy jumped into the blue rose and went home. They were completely enthralled by her discussion of the artists. This book should be required reading for middle grade children and recommended for children of all, ages. The reader feels everything Lucy feels the wonder of flying, the fun she has with Wilbur, even her panic when Wilbur’s starts to die, marooned on the dark hill in van Gogh ‘s Starry. Night. We believe ind iwuid moors and pink moon, ww believe in navigators and Wise One. Everybody’s original ideas are worthy; everyone has magic inside him. All we need is a guide like Wilbur to unleash it.
