So my son went to the book fair preview today. I kind of shudder at these book fairs. Normally his wish list consists of plenty of books but an equal number of toys or movie tie-ins.
Not this time. This time he had all books.
Here's my consensus after reading the list:
- I know he's my son.
- I know he's a boy.
- I know he's smart (OK, I am his mom - I can say this).
The first book on the list is Tunnels. I've been wanting this, and given the great hardback price, it's a must have.
Book 2 is The Titan's Curse. I told him I already have this, but he didn't quite get that we could share the copy. Still it may be worth getting a second copy seeing as how it was such a fantastic book.
Third - The Curse of the Campfire Weenies. Yes, this proves he is a boy. I asked if he picked it only because it had the word "weenies" in the title. He insisted no, it was because the weenies have arms and legs and faces, and after seeing the cover, I agree. It is cute.
Fourth - The Fall of the Templar. So the Templars have taken over kid-lit too?
Fifth - Never Land. Wait. Is this a Tinkerbell book? Maybe he picked it for my daughter?
Sixth - Epic Battles Star Wars
Seventh - The Story of Darth Vader
(Did I mention George Lucas is a genius?)
(And no, I don't consider the Star Wars books movie tie-ins. They go way beyond that).
Eights - The Dag - No idea on this one what it is.
And Last - Sea Monsters. I clarified that this was not The Sea of Monsters, and he insisted it is a big book (as big as his shark book) on sea creatures.
So there you have it. He is a boy. He is my son. And he is smart.
