It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a meme created by The Broke and Bookish.
This week’s topic? Our choice
My choice? Ten dinner invitations I would accept in the world of MG and YA books. If these characters invited me for dinner, I would be there with bells on. Why? The conversation, the quirky family dynamics, the interesting characters and in some cases, a really true sense that the food would be great! It is dinner after all 🙂
If they asked, I would be there – in these books:
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
Really I want to hang on every word from the Grandfather and some of those dinners did sound pretty amazing.
How to Outrun a Crocodile when Your Shoes are Untied by Jess Keating
It might be squishy at that table when they move to the zoo but I have the feeling dinner conversations would be fascinating.
The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher by Dana Alison Levy
Partly it’s because I adore these boys. Partly it’s because I love the Dads. And oh, such a beautiful, messy, busy, loving family vibe.
The Truth about Twinkie Pie by Kat Yeh
It may be that I want to try one of these sugar filled dessert recipes just to see if I explode but also, I really am rooting for these girls.
The Penderwicks in Spring by Jeanne Birdsall
I would come and eat with the Penderwicks at any age and stage. I love this family up, down, sideways and around in circles.
Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage
I could hang out in this diner all day spying on small town curiosities. But I would definitely do a dinner or two.
After Iris by Natasha Farrant
I actually may not get served dinner in this eccentric family – but wow, would I like to do take out pizza with this sibling group.
The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron
Yes, I would like to squeeze into the trailer and dine with Lucky and Brigitte. And for dessert? Cookies of course. With Miles.
Listen, Slowly by Thanhhà Lai
Oh how I would love to attend dinner with this family. And I am sitting next to Grandma.
Each Little Bird That Sings by Deborah Wiles
Well. I would eat any meal with this family. It could be funeral fare. It could be leftovers. Sign me up.
And you? Which book do you hope invites you for dinner?
