Snidley Whiplash, Where Are You When We Need You??

I thought you could trust books Okay enough is too much! My childhood has been officially ruined. It was ruined by a book. Books were always our friends. Books took us to far-off, imaginary places.

Love Nature… Just Don’t Hug Too Many Spiders!!

In the olden days In days of yore the stalwart pioneers forged their way into the wilderness. Those brave men and women trekked for miles, enduring harsh conditions, as the sun beat down on their sweaty brows all day. In these trying times it was the father who became the bold hero of the day. …
