Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week participants open to a random page in the book they are currently reading and share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, being careful not to include spoilers, i.e. too much information that would ruin the experience of read­ing the book for others.

In the lives of children, pumpkins can turn into coaches, mice and rats into human beings. When we grow up, we learn that it’s far more common for human beings to turn into rats.

  1. I read one Maguire book years ago. It didn’t work for me as much as I expected to. I meant to go back and try again, but haven’t done so yet.

  2. I got a Maguire book from a garage sale recently; I did enjoy it a lot. It’s humorous and practical. I really hope I will get the chance to read this book in the future.

    Amazing teaser, I just have to read this. So true too, more often than not it isn’t the bad turning into the good but the other way around. On the bright side, if we all work together we make amazing things come of terrible ones. I read the most amazing book this week. I had used it for my Teaser Tuesday and loved it so much I decided to post my review today. Feel free to head over to my blog and check it out at http://EmmaMichaels.Blogspot.com and post your teaser in my comments!
