Hello my bloggy friends! I am in a bit of a funk - not feelin so hot and crabby about this freezing cold weather - I try not to complain this early in the season, but I am SO DONE WITH WINTER! I am so sick of wearing long johns - when I take them off I freeze...
anyhow, I thought I'd just get on and post this as I had it ready to go already. I am heading out of town for a quick work trip, thankfully only a one-nighter, but hope to be back to visit you all Thursday night. Enough complaining from me, I hope you will enjoy my wee book review.....it is a funny one and I know I could use a good laugh right about now, maybe it will warm me up!
This here is one of our recent faves by Judy Schachner. Skippyjon is a Siamese cat who likes to think he is a Chihuahua with a Spanish accent. Mama Junebug Jones comes up with the funniest random nicknames for her kittens - this is where Pickle Pants' on-line name came from. :) Here is a little exerp - it had us in a fit of giggles, I mean practically rolling on the floor laughing....
Back in the kitchen, the girls were being a big help to Mama Junebug Jones. "I love noodles," declared Jilly Boo.
"Noodles are silly," said Jezebel.
"That's because they're NOOD," said Ju-Ju Bee.
"They're not nude," said Jilly Boo, giggling. "Theyr'e naked!" And she tossed one up to the ceiling, where it stuck.
If you have children between the ages of 3 and about 9 and you haven't read them any of the Skippyjon Jones series, I highly recommend them.
The other titles are:
Skippyjon Jones and the Big Bones
Skippyjon Jones in the Dog-House
Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble
Happy Reading! And here's hoping that wherever you are, you are warmer than me!!! I know, I know, it could always be worse, I'm just really cranky today.....
