Shen of the Sea by Arthur Bowie Chrisman

I had a blast on Saturday attending Anderson’s Children’s Literature Breakfast. The breakfast allowed me to catch up with Nerdy Book Club members, and it gave Mr. Schu and I an opportunity to film a #nerdbery video together for the first time.

Best part of Shen of the Sea was being able to record the #nerdbery video with “EXTREME LIBRARIAN” Mr. Schu. Be sure to check out Mr. Schu’s blog: Watch.Connect.Read.

I forgot to take a picture of the book before I returned it to the library, so I had to just take a picture with cover from the Internet.

  1. Yes! Those are some of the reasons I detested – loathed – despised Shen of the Sea. It’s like he said, “Huh, let’s write about Chinese culture” but he knew NOTHING about it. So many of those stories taught lessons that (From what little *I* know about that culture – see, I can admit my lack of knowledge) would not fly.

    And the stories were boring. So there’s that.

  2. I think the reference to “Shen” in WONDER was in the context of school- assigned reading (blech!) so I feel confident the Palacio is also not a fan.
    Thanks guys for reading all these early ones…really taking one for the team!
