My Bookish Quote/Teaser Tuesday comes from the page 5 so right at the beginning of the book when we are just getting to know the main character, Cassandra. Her perfect life is just about to fall apart in a big way.
I nodded - so true. Spot on, in fact.
Why Alice in Wonderland? I know it's not what most thirty-year-old PR executives read. Well, we all have our means of coping. Some people are into Oprah; others, Buddha; and some - well, me - rely on Alice. I first discovered the wisdom of Alice at the age of eight...
What follows after this quote is a whole passage about how Cassie found the book and how much she treasured it, but it was too long to type it all out!
I can't imagine using a book like Alice in Wonderland as guidance for life, can you?
Before I finish this post, I thought I would share a video about the native Australian Lyrebird that this book obviously has taken inspiration from in terms of the title at least. This bird has the amazing ability to be able to mimic all sort of noises - other bird species, construction tools, cars, humans and more!
This video was all about Chook who was the male lyrebird at the Adelaide Zoo. He died recently at the grand old age of 32.
In addition to the mimicry, they can put on a very impressive display with their tails to help protect their territory. An all round amazing Australian native animal.
There has been an appearance of one lyrebird in the book so far, along with some other rare wildlife!
