Teaser Tuesdays are hosted by Should Be Reading. It works as follows:
- Grab your current read.
- Open to a random page.
- Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page.
- Be careful not to include spoilers!
- Include the title and author.
From Larklight by Phillip Reeve, p78:
"I crouched beside Myrtle, and saw that, though pale beneath her coating of moon dust, she was sleeping peacefully. It seemed unfair to wake her, because I knew that she would simply hate the din and dirt around us, so I looked about, wondering where I should go, and noticed the blue, reptilian person called Ssilissa slipping through a small brass door at the back of the big cabin."
'the blue reptilian person called Ssilissa' sounds like a great fantasy!
Oooh. So is Ssilissa good or evil?
What a wonderful teaser - so full of description, and a name like Myrtle and Ssilissa!!

Interesting! Looks like a unique book!
A space adventure, what fun! Good teaser.
Here is my teaser
Thank you for stopping by, everyone! Yes, it is a space adventure, and even better... it's a Victorian space adventure. My belief is firmly and happily suspended.
Beth re: goodness/evilness of Ssilissa -- I don't know! Haven't gotten to that part yet. I believe it involves space pirates though.
some of the best books I've read were meant for kids. nice teaser. read my teaser here
I love books where the suspension of disbelief is so radical but so plausible too. Excellent teaser! It sounds like a really good book.
My teaser is at Bookishgal
Oooo! That sounds fun!
I have a feeling I'll like this too!
Thanks for commenting, all! I've finished it, and am cooking up a review. Lots of parts of this book are good, and I did enjoy it, but with caveats. What worries me is that a lot of people seemed to have enjoyed it much more than I, and I wonder if I was just in a bad mood, or too oblivious to tongue-in-cheek characterizations?
