To Timbuktu, by Casey Scieszka

Summary: Casey and Steven met in Morocco, moved to China then went all the way to Timbuktu. This illustrated travel memoir tells the story of their first two years out of college spent teaching English, making friends across language barriers, researching, painting, and learning to be themselves wherever they are.

  1. 80/almost 500 pages in…this is my favorite Printz book I’ve read so far this year. I want to teach English in China with the awesome boyfriend I met in Morocco, visit 8 more countries over the course of a year and a half and then write a book with him when we get back! And the pictures!

    One thing, though…Casey does not like Harry Potter. Grrr. xD
