Where Fleur ponders the positive value of negative space.
Nice to see your new addition, George! As a reading specialist, I love this newsletter and the mention of negative space and how much dialogue is appreciated by different types of readers, especially reluctant readers. It's also appreciated by struggling readers who aren't always reluctant but have trouble reading large blocks of text.
I was at the library last week and mentioned Midnight at the Barclay Hotel to a parent who was looking for a book that was not too scary but an adventure or a mystery.
