By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Miss Rumphius

Miss Rumphius - Barbara Cooney

Miss Rumphius is one of my all time favorite books by one of my all time favorite authors/illustrators. I didn’t own a copy, so when I saw a paperback version in a donation pile, I snatched it up. Eventually, I hope to get a hardback copy. But for right now, I have the Lupine Lady and her quest to do something to make the world more beautiful.
