“I really enjoyed reading this book and I can see why my son told me that I needed to read it as soon as he was able to relocate it in his room.”

Beginnings

On Sundays we do beginnings – the first paragraph or two from a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. For one thing, this gives us a chance to trot out the word moniker! Last Sunday we did a beginning that was also a sneak peek. Paws vs. Claws, the second in the middle grade Queenie and Arthur series, comes out on Tuesday. Queenie’s a cat, Arthur a dog. They take care of the narration in alternating chapters. Since Queenie got chapter one, it’s only fair that today we present the beginning of chapter two.

I dreamed I was at a cookout. I love cookouts so this dream couldn’t have been any better. Bro was at the grill flipping burgers. Burgers flipped by Harmony stay flipped. Burgers flipped by Bro have a way of getting loose from time to time. That’s something I’ve noticed all by my very own self. You may hear that old Arthur doesn’t have a lot going on upstairs. Don’t you believe it! I’m upstairs every night, sleeping under Bro’s bed. That way I have two roofs over my head, one the bed and the other the actual roof. What could be snugger than that? So there I was caught up in a very snug dream, a burger in my near future, when from over in the meadow I heard the mooing of a cow. Was this mooing part of the dream? Or part of whatever happens in the world when I’m all caught up in a dream? Whoa! That was a deep thought. I prefer the other kind, not so deep. With all this confusion going on, my lovely cookout dream faded away until there was nothing left but the smell of grilling burgers. I came very close to waking up, settling into a nice doze at the very last moment. Arthur dodges a bullet! Which had actually sort of happened once with real gunfire, a big event for all of us at the inn, although the details grow sketchier every day. One thing I know how to do is keep a clear mind. A clear mind is ready for anything!
