There is a hardcover school edition of Rosemary Sutcliff'sEagle of the Ninth that takes me back to when I studied it in grade 7 at Tecumseh South Public School. I remember the joy of reading that book, and recall the joy I had in answering the chapter questions listed in the back of the book.

What book transports YOU back in time to when you first read it?

Here are a few of my projects that help me to stay creative while spreading the good words.
