Coincidence? Mystery? Magic? How does the white cow get away in Tres Seymour’s Hunting the White Cow? How does the crayon in Harold’s Purple Crayon come to have special powers? Some books leave us with questions, leave us wondering. And often those are the books we best remember, the ones readers of all ages think about and talk about again and again.
