My children love to help me make WEM connections. For example this week at the library they borrowed Garfield Eats Crow and found this strip: Garfield and Moby-Dick.
Who knew that the famous orange cat was curious about classics?
Garfield’s 10 second story reminded me of Christina’s post about “Book-a-Minute Classics“. I know Christina said that we like to do things the hard way, and we do. We’re not cheaters. We read the blasted books no matter how long or bizarre they may be, but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy a chuckle or two with these little cheats after the wrap-up is over.
I think The Return of the Native synopsis might be my favorite. Although, I did enjoy The Portrait of a Lady one as well.
Feeling brave? a little snarky? Go ahead and write your own “Book-a-Minute” summary.
