This summer, there is no question which book is the Wild Rumpus favorite: The Real Boy by Anne Ursu. The two tattered staff copies have been passed around like hot potatos. People have had to swear that they would finish within a week so as to get it to the next person, then find that they finish in a day or two because they can't put it down. We've heard accusations that certain employees were hiding a copy so as to keep it...but the truth will out.
The point is, we love this book. We're sure you will, too. From the elegant writing to the well-drawn characters, to the bit of magic and unexpected turns that fit so perfectly into what is ultimately a beautiful story and fable, we can't say enough good things about The Real Boy.
Anne Ursu already topped our list of favorite authors (and that's not just because her name starts with an 'A'), so we'll have to add a star or something.
We can't wait to see her and have her sign our books on Sunday, October 6 at 2PM. We'll probably have to buy a few more copies, though.
