No, I didn’t dumpster dive to obtain this book. The librarian in question had determined that this book was too beat up for the dignity of her shelves. On that particular day I happened into the library after school and she offered A Dark Dark Tale to me. Were it not for 3M’s Fabulous Book Tape it would not still grace my bookshelf. But, a decade or so later, it endures.
I like this book, but wasn’t going to include it my blog. However, on Halloween I ominously read of the dark, dark mystery hidden in these pages. When the secret was revealed (and my class burst into laughter) I knew that it was indeed post worthy.
