The Five-Year-Old, waiting for her dinner to arrive: “Daddyo, do you want to play tic-tac-toe with me?”

Daddyo: “Only if you draw the X’s for me.”

The Five-Year-Old: “It’s really easy. You make two lines cross like this, but teensy.”


About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at, muse about books and the writing life at, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
