"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." Albert Einstein

Van Cleve, Kathleen. Drizzle. New York: Penguin Group, 2010.

I tried. I really did. But a book about a girl whose best friend is a chocolate rhubarb plant is a bit much, even for me. It looks like a really fun story, if you can get past the hyperactive-seventh-grade-stream-of-consciousness style of telling the story, where things will likely make much more sense at the end. It even has a map in the front, and I like stories with maps, but this one, unfortunately, was too random, even for me.
