Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.
This week's teaser comes from page 92 of The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdoms.
“Conner and his friends returned to Dead Man’s Creek much sooner than any of them would have liked. He and Jack rummaged through piles of destroyed witches’ Brew while Red and Goldilocks searched the woods hearby, Porridge and her son, Oats (who was nearly the size of his mother now), helped Conner and Jack by kicking over the larger pieces of the wrecked tavern.
“I only see sticks” Jack said. “Are we looking for anything in particular?”
“Anything” Conner said desperately.”
