Here is one of my favorites from The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer:
The list got me thinking how I usually ignore the dedications in books. I jumped up to peruse my bookshelf to see if there were any hidden gems. Most of the dedications were predictable but a few were worth mentioning:
The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig: "To Ann and Marshall Nelson. In at the beginning and reliably fantastic all the way."
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell: "For Kari, who's better than fiction."
Peace Like a River by Leif Enger: "To Robin: The country ahead is as wild a spread/As ever we're likely to see/The horses are dancing to start the advance---/Won't you ride on with me?"
All of these are sweet and thoughtful, then I opened up Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach and just about lost it. This doesn't really need any explanations!
Ha-ha! Woody! Get it?
