Rootabaga Stories: Part Two by Carl Sandburg
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Fanciful and humorous short stories.
This was recommended by our favorite children's librarian, who knows Z's love for strange and poetic read alouds that can be taken purely for their use of words or for a deeper meaning. It didn't disappoint, except for the last story which was far more obviously sad than the others and which, as Z said, didn't have the same rhythms as the others in the collection.
Pam recommended this last year based on Z's love of poetic prose. He loved it, as did I. Forgot to add it here until I picked up a copy of More Rootabaga Stories at Value Village last night.
This second volume of unique fairy tales includes stories originally published in 1923. Each reflects the warmth of a midwestern childhood, a zest for life, and a love of the American language that has never been equaled.
