“Enter Three Witches”

Another “Mama’s losin’ it” challenge:

 1.) Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page and share two “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

“He was sick with shame.  How many stupid things could he do all in a row?  He couldn’t ride a horse, couldn’t pull a sword, couldn’t kill a man, couldn’t tell the truth, couldn’t turn down a reward falsely given, and couldn’t even say a kind word to a desperate girl but had to laugh at Lady Mary and make things worse.  And then to charge into a barn and find that he’d tried to knife an owl! 

And Prince Malcom had seen and had to save that poor woman, Ildred.”  (p. 93 Enter Three Witches)

image O.k., that was a little more than two sentences.  I just finished Enter Three Witches by Caroline B. Cooney and found it very entertaining and clever in its retelling, or new perspective, of the play and tale of Macbeth.  “Out, damned spot!”  It’s definitely more than a tale of difficult laundry!

Hmmm. Sounds interesting. As I was reading the teaser I thought, sounds like Macbeth.
