The Charlatan's Boy by Jonathan Rogers

Today through Wednesday, the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy tour will be featuring The Charlatan's Boy by Jonathan Rogers. This is a super fun book that I will tell you more about in the coming days. I so have a small confession to make though and I hope you won't think this educator as someone who is uneducated. When I first started reading this book, I had no earthly idea what a "charlatan" was!! I feel so crazy now and I did figure it out from the context, however I also took the time to look up the meaning of the word. According to the Oxford American Dictionary, a charlatan is "a person falsely claiming to have a special knowledge or skill; a fraud". 

Along the way, I also researched YouTube for more information on Charlatan's and Feechies. Enjoy the following clips!! Come back tomorrow to learn about our featured author, Jonathan Rogers.
This one was created by Sally Apokedak! Be sure to visit her during this tour!!

  1. Hey, too cool. I'm very glad you chose that interview with Sarah Palin to put on the blog. And the video with Dr. Rogers is classic. I love him in that clip. He plays the perfect dorky perfesser a little too well, maybe. heh heh

    And I can sympathize with you over the not knowing the meaning of words Rogers uses. He's always using words I don't know. It must be that PhD he has in seventeenth century literature. He's read a lot of words that most of us don't use anymore, I think.

    I thought that he made several words up in The Charlatan's Boy. It turns out that he didn't. Robustious is a real word. I never would have guessed it.

  2. Sally's Sarah Palin/Larry King video is one of the most hilarious! Really glad you included it in your post, Julie.
