A Few Blocks

A Few Blocks - Cybèle Young Even if I’d not read the publishing information or the information about the author, one look at this book would have told me that this book was not made here in America; the book has an air of foreign exoticism that I like.A boy and his sister are preparing to go to school, but the boy does not want to go. The sister encourages her brother by pretending with him that they are superheroes and pirates and a knight and princess. When, at the end of the road, the sister begins to falter, her brother encourages her to finish.“’That’s it. I’m not going. Not now,’ he said. ‘Maybe never.’ He watched as some ants on the ground ate a gumdrop. Viola pointed to a leaf in the gutter and said, ‘The ship’s leaving! We’d better hop on and go find the buried treasure.’”
