It is now July, and midsummer was last month, so I am slightly late with my Once Upon a Time V round-up post. But things happened to get in the way of posting. Okay, one thing. The puppy. Time consuming she is, but I think I have somewhat of a schedule going on now and she is gradually learning her place. So I have time for the round-up post, you’ll be happy to hear :)
Every night Conor O’Malley has the nightmare. Every night. But tonight something is different. Tonight there is a new monster. A new nightmare. And Conor isn’t sure if this is a dream or not. But either way, this is the monster he was fearing. This monster, the yew tree, tells him that it will tell him three stories. And then Conor will tell the monster a story. A true story. And if he doesn’t, then the monster will eat him alive.
As you may remember, last year I came across a series of books by Patrick Ness, The Chaos Walking trilogy. Which I loved. They even made me cry they were so good. And when I spotted that he was going to write a book based on an idea by Siobhan Dowd I thought, oh, that sounds fascinating. And then I saw the cover, and thought “ooooohhh that looks veeeery interesting”.
