Twelve Terrific Telephone Tales: It’s Telephone Time After All

Looks like the Tuesday after Labor Day is a busy day for the telephone; so much so that it has been dubbed Telephone Tuesday!! Which means this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is taking me off-theme and off-topic with ten terrific telephone tales!

  • Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q. Sutanto (Asian American Literature & Fiction). A book I am finally reading, and enjoying!!
  • The Elephant, The Tiger, and the Cellphone: India, the Emerging 21st-Century Power by Shashi Tharoor (Non-fiction/Essays). The cover, the title, and the author got to me, so now I am finding myself dipping into the book. So far, I have read a couple of the essays and they are brilliant.
  • The Phone Booth in Mr. Hirota’s Garden by Heather Smith and illustrations by Rachel Wada (Children’s Asian fiction | 6- 8 years, and up). Heartwarming and heartbreaking all in one with a tender narrative and illustrations that totally complement the story.
  • Telephone by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jen Corace (Children’s Fiction | 4 – 8 years, and up). A sweet fun read that brings back memories of childhood games.
  • Timmy and the Tin-can Telephone by Franklyn Mansfield Branley and illustrated by Eleanor K. Vaughan (Children’s Fiction).
  • The Lonely Phone Booth by by Peter Ackerman and illustrated by Max Dalton (Children’s Fiction | 4 – 8 years, and up). Both the narrative and the artwork work together to create a sweet nostalgic story within the pages of this book.
  • The Telephone Box Library by Rachael Lucas (Romantic Fiction). A sweet read I hope to get to soon. Small town romances and libraries are always appealing!
  • Telephone Tales by Gianni Rodari (Author), Valerio Vidali (Illustrator), and Antony Shugaar  (Translator). (Children’s Fiction | 8 – 12 years, and up). So much to love about this one that I don’t know where to start. In short, read it, no matter your age.
  • The Phone Booth at the Edge of the World by Laura Imai Messina (Fiction). A book that tugged at heartstrings for so many reasons.
  • John Updike’s Telephone Poles and Other Poems (Poetry). It is poetry by Updike!
  • Telephone by Percival Everett (Literary Fiction). I am yet to read this book but it is calling to me.
  • Tweet Cute by Emma Lord (Teen and YA Fiction). Check out my review of this book I had fun reading – here.
