Teaser Tuesday - 10 May

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
Youlgreave re-enacted Bottom's enchanted sleep, lying on the rising mound that led to the shrubbery, whilst Dorothy, Phyllis and Florian hovered as Peaseblossom, Moth and Mustardseed. Toby was not in fancy dress apart from the papier-maché and horse-hair mask he was inside.
from A S Byatt's The Children's Book novel about creativity and its effects - this is Adam Mars-Jones review - the book is based in the England of the early years of 20th century and fairly teems with detail - I'm currently struggling to hold all the information together!
