The Five-Year-Old out in the world

Daddyo was out on a hike with The Five-Year-Old one day last fall, when suddenly she stopped and squatted in the grass.

Daddyo: “What did you find, The Five-Year-Old?”

The Five-Year-Old: “It’s a peanut shell.”

Daddyo, greatly amazed: “A peanut shell with no peanut?”

The Five-Year-Old: “Yeah, it’s a mystery.”

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.
