Teaser Tuesday... Kind of

Teaser Tuesday posts are supposed to be a brief teaser (around two to three sentences) from the book you're currently reading.

However, I'm currently reading American Born Chinese a graphic novel written and illustrated by Gene Luen Yang, which doesn't really fit into the traditional Teaser Tuesday format. So, I give you three panels (pages 29-31) that are wonderfully provided from the publisher's website. (Click the panels to see them in full-size.)



If you enjoyed those panels, which made me laugh, check out some more on the First Second Books website... which is awesome... and then pick up a copy of the book.

This is hilarious. I have to get this book for my two sons.

My teaser, I hope you'll like. It does explain the surroundings and circumstances for the two sentences.

Probably the largest gap in my local library (and the network of libraries it is connected to) is the dearth of graphic novels. I would so like to find this one there, but I'd probably have more luck finding a winning lottery ticket.

Very cool. I keep reading reviews of graphic novels but have yet to read one. I wonder if my book club would be willing, hmm, have to suggest that at the next meeting!

That is funny and unfortunately probably happens more then we realize. Poor kid!

I'm having some trouble with Alice and her crazy wonderland. Maybe I'm too grown up? Never read this as a child, so I have no previous memories to draw from.
