Mistaken Toy Identity

Really Mom we have no idea how he got off the book shelf. We thought he must be ours when he was on the floor. There was no malice intended.

OK we need a good dog lawyer to press our case. Any takers?

Snow Again

Not that we should be surprised, but it snowed again. It seems winter has finally remembered New England. We are enjoying snow cookies again. However, we are not sure how long they will last.

Our Stories are Back: The Big Over Easy

Mama has brought back our morning story hour. Over Christmas, she heard about a mystery series based on nursery characters for adults written by Jasper Fforde. We are listening to the first one The Big Over Easy: A Nursery Crime a Jack Spratt detective story that covers the murder of Humpty Dumpty.

Mama has a thing about the Humpty murder case. She used to make her students try to decide who murdered Humpty as part of a class exercise on traditional literature, so she is enjoying this story.

She is finding it funny how they are mixing Grimm's, nursery rhymes, and mythology all in one book.

Katy has been disappointed that there is little romance in the novel. Bailey was looking for more action. However, Mama loves the combination of mystery and fairytale characters. We will update more when we finish listening to the story.
