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 A Blessing of Toads by Sharon Lovejoy, p209:
"These pudgy omnivores, who are often referred to as Mother Nature's cleaning crew, are voracious feeders who eat not only household garbage, fallen fruits, and a legion of diverse garden pests, but also roadkill and any carrion they find. Depending on the bounty of the season, their nightly foraging may include crawfish, grasshoppers, potato bugs, hornworms, gypsy moths, grubs, armyworms, Japanese beetles, wasps, and an assortment of small vertebrates such as mice, voles, shrews, gophers (hurrah!), and young rats."
And for even more fun, see if you can guess which [North American] creature Lovejoy is talking about! I'll make sure to post the answer in the comments Thursday.
UPDATE: If you want to know the name of the creature described in this passage, have a peek at the comments. :)
