Teaser Tuesday ~ Sept. 11th

 

 
"Because Papa is balancing himself on a copy of War and Peace", Elizabeth explained. "Mother was the same height as Papa, you see, so he brought the book from his library to the photographer's."
 Julia had to smile. "Your father doesn't strike me as being selfconscious about his height."
"Actually, he isn't. But he says he didn't want future generations referring to him as 'the short Grandfather Phelps.' Yet he tells everyone who sees the photograph that he's perched upon a book."



Here's how it works!
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following
:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!!

Funny! These sound like terrific characters, and terrific characters make for a good book.
My teaser is from A COLLIE RESCUE.
