Teaser Tuesday!!!

Welcome back, everyone, after a long weekend!!!    Personally, I could use another day or two.....

So, here we are at Teaser Tuesday ---- Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by the wonderful MizB of Should be Reading and it asks us to...
  • 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

This week's teaser comes from one of my favorite books from Roald Dahl:  Danny, The Champion of the World (which I'm re-reading for my celebration of Roald Dahl month).

And actually, it's three sentences today: "Captain Lancaster was a violent man, and we were all terrified of him.  He used to sit at his desk stroking his carrotty moustache and watching us with pale watery-blue eyes, searching for trouble.  And as he sat there, he would make queer snuffling grunts through his nose, like some dog sniffing around a rabbit hole."   p. 103

Enjoy your Tuesday, everyone!

Roald Dahl isn't my cup of tea but my son likes his books. Enjoy your book. Mine's from Opur's Blade by James Ross.
