You try to quietly walk away, but the boy hears your feet rustling against some twigs.
“Are you here to pay your respects to Old Dan and Little Ann?” the boy sweetly asks. Caught off guard, you nod your head “yes.”
“So, what would you like to say about my wonderful dogs? What stories about them would you like to recall? Can you describe their different personalities? Anything kind, thoughtful and informed you can say here would make me feel better.”
As you panic, you realize the book brought you into a living, breathing pop quiz. You run from the gravesite and look for a bookstore. You’re going to open every book you can find until one takes you back to The Not Ozarks!
