Cool Stuff I Like
January 31, 2014
Happy Friday and HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!! Have you heard me say before how I say it? The whole phrase, as in "How are you spending Happy Chinese New Year?" or "Should we have noodles on Happy Chinese New Year??" I have not cleaned my whole house. But it wasn't that bad to begin with. I did wash all of my bedding yesterday. We're not supposed to be washing our hair today. I probably will. So I'm doing everything kind of halfway. Does that mean that this year I'll only be half lucky???

Cool Book of the Week: So if you recall my post earlier in the week about vintage books I recently found, you'll remember me flipping my lid about 'The Magical Monarch of Mo', which I had been searching for oh, just over 20 years or so. No biggie. Well, 'The Enchanted Island of Yew' is another really obscure L. Frank Baum book that I would love to get my hands on. Let's see, how to explain, apparently some fairy girl decides to spend a year living life as a human.....boy......named Prince MARVEL....(Baum likes this theme, see 'The Marvelous Land of Oz' wherein Princess Ozma spends a part of her childhood in the enchanted form of a little boy, before she is turned back into her real self)...anyway, 'Yew' is meant for slightly older child readers, like 4th-5th grade +, and it's supposed to be a fun fantasy fairy tale. If you're a Baum fan, this one is supposed to be worth seeking out. I am!
