Librarians have a thing for pairing up books with similar themes, and we have two gorgeous books in our collection with very similar titles: <a href="http://share.bookboard.com/shelves/bb_545b0a5b1460995ac9baf/index.html?selectedBookID=467">Maybe Later</a>, and <a href="http://share.bookboard.com/shelves/bb_545b0a5b1460995ac9baf/index.html?selectedBookID=79">Today, Maybe</a>. The titles are not all that these two books share (keep in mind that <a href="http://share.bookboard.com/shelves/bb_545b0a5b1460995ac9baf/index.html?selectedBookID=467">Maybe Later</a> is a chapter book and <a href="http://share.bookboard.com/shelves/bb_545b0a5b1460995ac9baf/index.html?selectedBookID=79">Today, Maybe</a>, is a picture book). They both effectively capture a sense of mystery and magic, and recall the dreamlike joy of a child’s imagination. Sometimes, it’s better for a mystery to remain a mystery. Or is it?<!–more–>

<a href="http://share.bookboard.com/shelves/bb_545b0a5b1460995ac9baf/index.html?selectedBookID=467">Maybe Later</a> is a story about a mysterious bottle that Johnny finds in his grandpa’s closet. Johnny can’t see inside it, and the top is stopped up with a cork.
<blockquote>Johnny took the bottle to the sunroom where his grandpa was snoozing. He jumped on the sofa.

"What’s in this bottle?" he demanded.

"Well now, that’s a puzzle," his grandpa said. "I never did figure that out."</blockquote>
I’ll leave it up to you to find out if Johnny ever finds out what’s inside.

<a href="http://share.bookboard.com/shelves/bb_545b0a5b1460995ac9baf/index.html?selectedBookID=79">Today, Maybe</a>, is a story about a little girl who lives in a cottage in the woods and is visited by a number of strangers. Many of these strangers try to lure, scare or cajole her away, but she is waiting for someone special. I wonder who it is?

Both of these books are worthy reads, so I’ve put them on a shelf with some other great books from the collection.
