*Blurg = blurb in a blog
I just finished reading Polly Horvath‘s My One Hundred Adventures (2008, Groundwood Books). It’s quirky and delightful, and it is set at the seaside (which, in my rating system, automatically gives it bonus points). I highly recommend it! Here’s the blurb from the back cover:
You can hear the waves crash more loudly when it is dark. You can smell the sharper smells of the sea. Maybe the wind will take us this time, I think, as a gust shakes the foundations of the house. Maybe we will be blown apart to the many corners of the earth, but then I feel a sharp stab of something, excitement maybe. It is the prospect of adventures to be had.
