Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “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 teasers!
Title: Pecos Bill
Author: Brian Gleeson
Year Published: 1988
Publisher: Rabbit Ears Books
Genre: Adventure, Western
Reading Level: Children
Brian Gleeson has drawn on old source materials to adapt a story that is rich in language and imagery and sheer nonsensical fun, and illustrator Tim Raglin has worked inspired magic on this legendary character from the Old West. Among the best traditional American tall tales, this one stands very tall indeed.
“Why, you’re as naked as a jaybird, partner. Why in tar nation you’re running around without clothes. Did you lose them in a poker game or are you just glad to see me?”
This is one awesome story!!! Its so hilarious and Robin Williams did a fantastic job at narrating this story!
Do you have a book that you are currently reading that you would like to show to everyone else? Please feel free to post your Teaser Tuesday in the comments below and I’ll check them out!
