My First Review

And it's from the perfect target audience!
Life is good when a review starts like this:
"The Emerald tablet was THE best book I read in a long time!"

Read the whole review here.
Thanks, Bookworms' Reviews!


On a sidenote, I'd like to step back and thank Shrek for a moment.
You know the fun karaoke part at the end of Shrek 1? Love that part! And apparently so do my kids.
My son has been singing "I like big butts and I cannot lie" constantly. Everywhere. Around the house. At the grocery store. At Kung Fu camp.
And I can't get the tune out of my head! Ack! Make it stop.

Now off to work on stuff.

Thanks, Keri! It's definitely a great one to have as my first!

You read Cheryl Klein's parody of "I Like Big Butts," right? If not, I'll track down the link for you later.

PJ Hoover said...

No, I didn't, Sarah. Please track it down.
The song just cracks me up way too much to tell him to stop singing it.

Christine M said...

Too cool with the link! The young reviewer feels famous now!

PJ Hoover said...

The young reviewer is famous, Chris!

Kelly said...

Yay, Tricia! So cute :)

Dawn Buthorn said...

Congrats, pj. As far as the "big butts" song, if you google "I like big butts" you'll come across a wedding video on Youtube. I laughed my big butt off when I saw it!

Cheryl's version

Vivian said...

Yay! for a great review! I'm glad you chose this book cover over the other one!

PJ Hoover said...

It is cute, isn't it, Kelly! I love that :)

LOL, Dawn. I almost Googled "I like big butts" but I got scared what would pop up on my computer. But I'll give it a try (once the kids are asleep)!

Too funny, Sarah! I would LOVE to hear someone sing it.
Do you sing?

Thanks, Vivian! I loved this cover, too, though it's still not the final. Maybe end of the weekend?

Thanks for visiting!

Sarah Rettger said...

Um, not since high school. And I don't think I've ever tried to sound like Sir Mix-a-Lot. Might have to get your son to try this one!

PJ Hoover said...

Too bad, Sarah. If I happen to record him, I'll post it on YouTube.

Dawn Buthorn said...

Here's the link-it's not dirty at all, your kids would probably get a kick out of it. You'll have to copy and paste it though-I don't know how to make a link yet. I so technologically impaired...
