Journal Entry 1 by GarryDH from Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Sunday, September 27, 2009
A hilarous and ultimately moving modern fairy-tale. Fup is, for the most part, a down-to-earth feel-good story of a grumpy old man, his gentle giant of a grandson and their rather unusual pet duck!. There's plenty of laughs along the way but the unexpected and beautiful ending left me speechless and with a strong desire to read the whole thing all over again (which given how short it is won't be hard).

This book is available as a bookray. For details see the next journal entry.

This is the type of book you'll want other people to read. I know I do and therefore I'm turning it into a bookray! If you're interested in reading this book check out the guidelines below and PM me to be added to the list.

Bookray Guidelines:
1. If you wish to be added to the list, please PM me with your details (not your address, see point 3) or reply to the forum post.
2. Once the ray is underway you'll need to be prepared to ship internationally as the next request could come from anywhere (if you list a preference I'll note it and try to accommodate).
3. You will be sending the book to the person who appears after you in the list, so you need to PM them to get their address!
4. It's a short book and shouldn't take too long to read so please try to keep it moving.
5. Please journal the book once you have received it and again when you have released it. Try to journal what you thought of the book as well (even a line or two is appreciated).
6. If you're the last person on the list the book is yours to do what you please with. If I don't see release notes to show it leaving your possession or receive a PM from you I'll assume you're still willing to participate in the ray and will keep adding people to the list.

Thanks for passing on the book.

Journal Entry 9 by wingkiwiinenglandwing from Wellington City, Wellington Province New Zealand on Friday, November 13, 2009
I really enjoyed the way the characters in this book interacted, the laid back approach and acceptance of each other and their quirks, and the insular family life.

The last bit was a little wierd.

This little book is off to Germany to continue its travels. I hope the next reader enjoys it as much as I did. Thanks GarryDH for starting this ring.

I got this in the mail yesterday and I can't wait to start reading it! I have another book to finish though, so it might be a tiny little while.
Thanks for sharing, GarryDH!

Journal Entry 12 by Oedde from Darmstadt, Hessen Germany on Tuesday, December 01, 2009
I did enjoy this as much as KiwiinEngland did! What a weird story!
I like it when characters are introduced by way of introducing their parents or grandparents.

whoops - the book arrived the week before last - but we have been on holidays at our shack (might be known as a seaside cottage in the UK) - so I have had limited access to email.

Journal Entry 19 by Dancesports from Petcheys Bay, Tasmania Australia on Tuesday, February 09, 2010
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I have quite a few people that I would like to share it with (some of them are non-bookcrossers). I've just released I'm at the end of the ray - so I will share the book with the non-bookcrossers and then continue the ray.

Thanks Dave. Nice to have another short book to read!

Journal Entry 25 by lakelady2282 at Lake Macquarie, New South Wales Australia on Thursday, June 16, 2011
What a delight! Fup is a wonderful fable about country life (real country life) and transformations. I loved the combination of fairytale (Fup herself) and the reality of the harsh hillybilly lifestyle. Dodge switches beautifully between both and his characterisations and telling details are masterful. Highly recommended.
