tonight on bedtime reading: Boo!

My son has been on a ghost kick lately, and requesting that all his bedtime stories be board books made spooky. I wish I had a recording of Evan's Haunted Home: "There's Olaf sitting in a chair -- looking at a picture of his dead friend Venus! Someone calls on the phone -- ohmigod, it's Venus's voice from beyond the grave!" I'm not quite so inspired, but we did have fun with Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks from A to Z tonight: "Here comes an Egg Car--eat too many eggs and YOU'LL DIE! And there's a Hotdog Car--eat too many hotdogs and YOU'LL DIE!"


move along, nothing to see here

I have a new issue of Notes from the Windowsill up, but if you read this blog regularly, you've alredy seen all the reviews in it. (Though they are perhaps slightly less interesting, sans the copious typos.)
