Folks, when I read Mike Allegra’s (children’s book writer extraordinaire) post this morning, I couldn’t stop laughing.
Oh, yeah, Mike prefers laughing rats over laughing cats. Here you go, Mike:
The answer to the often-repeated question “How do you know if you’ve got a character-driven book?” lies within his hilarious anecdote.
And for those of you who don’t care about the difference between character-driven and plot-driven stories, just—ah—read it and weep.

HahaHA! Thanks for sending us over – brilliant story!!
He’s got plenty of material to work with, doesn’t he? 😀
Thanks for the shoutout, my friend! (I am so grateful I shall overlook that evil looking rat pic.)
Evil? How could a sweet, gentle, laughing rat ever look evil?
Oh, you’re a pip, you know that?
Wasn’t that a funny story? I was reading it on my iPad in the dentist’s office, waiting for my kids to finish their exams. I laughed out loud and made a fool of myself. What a great story to rehash at their family holidays.
That’s when you stand up and read it aloud to everyone in the office. Oh yeah, I forgot you are an introvert. Sorry. 😀
Yeah, that problem wouldn’t happen. 😉
Thanks for making me laugh – not only because of that story but also because of that crazy kitten picture!
Yes, I just look at that photo and laugh. 😀
Oh, you two play nicely or I’ll have to separate you.
And what a clever kitten to write that story!
Oh, dear. We had better not speak of those furry little felines here again. He gets very twitchy whenever they’re mentioned…..
I loved this story too; he always makes me laugh!
Thanks for sharing! Seeing as how I’m pretty much a sitting duck in just as much snow out here, this is very appreciated!
You mean a sitting snow goose? 😀
Yes, that is pretty funny! So funny, I fell off of my beanbag chair! (which is hard to do) 🙂
Well, now that you’re on the floor, maybe you should make a snow angel. 😀
Great idea! 😀
Thanks for sharing, it has put a smile on my face this Monday morning.
