Today I Will – Eileen & Jerry Spinelli

Jeremy swallowed.  He didn’t really believe the thing upstairs was an egg.  But… Tonight he would try to hatch a dragon. — Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher by Bruce Coville.

At least once in a lifetime, everyone should try to hatch a dragon.  In every life there’s a “thing upstairs,” a possibility that may be (a) mysterious, (b) scary, (c) impossible, (d) not believed in.  Walking up those dark stairs and hatching that impossibility may turn out to be the best thing you ever do.  Dragon eggs await.

Ask yourself:

Is there a dragon egg in my attic? Am I curious enough to find out?  Bold enough to ascend the dark stairs?

Maybe a book?

Talk tomorrow,



  1. I love this opening: interesting and intriguing.

    • Mary,

      And an opening is so important.



  2. I just read that one in Today I Will also, Kathy!! 🙂 Let’s all go for it. Happy Hatchings, everyone!!


    • Connie,

      I think your dragon is about to roar.



  3. Um, am I the only one who doesn’t get this one, either?


  4. I tihink I will have a nightmare about dragons tonight, Kathy!


    • Laura,

      Make sure you put a notepad next to your bed. You never know when an idea will hatch.



  5. I used to be suggested this web site through my cousin. I’m now not sure whether or not this publish is
    written through him as no one else know such detailed about my problem.
    You are amazing! Thank you!
