The Book Fair

Last week at Carl's school we attended the book fair. Quite a lovely little fair, I must say. The folks at Scholastic know exactly how to do it... lots of inexpensive books with great illustrations on the cover. It was like letting the kids loose in a candy store. A healthy, organic kind of candy store.
Carl picked out a Geronimo Stilton book about Private Detectives and soon we began calling the boys OOC and OOG (that's double O C.) Gus picked out a cute one called Charlie Cook's Favourite Book, by By Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. The same team as The Gruffalo. (If you haven't seen this photo yet of the upcoming Children's Theatre show, please take a peek and see if you know that little fellow for the Gruffalo.)
The weather was so beautiful that we decided to stay at the park to play, or well, read. Before the swings and the slides, we had to read the new books, they said. Who can say no to that kind of request?
