DCIB Book Club: Ranson’s Folly in ONE WEEK!!! “Where’s Your Hat Abe Lincoln” in TWO WEEKS

I feel like energy for DCIB book club is waning. So next week is the short novella fun thing, and the week after that we will be discussing my nephew’s favorite book, “Where’s Your Hat Abe Lincoln”. So we can stay in touch with The Youth.

Ranson’s Folly by Richard Harding Davis

This is a long short story/short novella. You can special order it as a tiny little paperback pamphlet, or you can read it on gutenberg below:


I really want SOMEONE to read it, because there is a great central triangle of hero-heroine-heroine’s father and it’s just perfect for an Indian film recasting/rewrite.

Where’s Your Hat Abe Lincoln by Misti Kenison

My nephew is OBSESSED with this book. Which has lead my sister and brother-in-law to have hours of discussion over it, because when you spend much of your day reading the same thing over and over again, you will find yourself over thinking it. Anyway, I thought we should be in closer tough with The Youth, so this is my pick for 2 weeks from today.

You can buy it here (which I recommend, it’s a great thing to throw in your emergency gift closet):

Or watch someone read it on youtube here:

    • I thought the illustrations were odd to, but it’s my nephew’s favorite book. So clearly they knew what they were doing. Maybe all people look like South Park characters to babies?

      • Preview of one of my many deep thoughts: The author-illustrator lists her profession as web designer, perhaps it’s some sort of computer design thing? Also, nobody has a nose.
