Experimented with a different brush on this one - Summer Reading no 13. Elf Dog and Owl Head by M.T. Anderson. It took me a chapter or two to get into it, but I loved it once the story got going. A boy named Clay lives at the edge of woods that have secret paths between worlds. Soon he’s adopted Elf hound Elsinore, and having adventures with Owl-head friend Amos. Great fantasy with gentle influences from the pandemic. Hard to believe this is the same author who wrote Feed.
I'm an aspiring author / illustrator.
