One of my Battle of the Books team students came into the Media Center to show off her socks which she called “An ode to The Graveyard Book“. The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman, was one of this year’s fifteen Florida Sunshine State Books that the team studied and competed on.
In the book, one of the characters, Ms. Owens, sings a song and she’s unsure of the final lyrics. Since she’s not sure what the lyrics actually are she sings them as “and some hairy bacon”! This student in particular loved this part of the story so when she found her socks she had to have them! Today she ran into my Media Center to show them off!
Aren’t they hilarious?! And I love that they’re bookish!
