“Two Arms and Three Elbows ”, “The Day the Python Pooped ”and many other favorite stories for teen-age kids and their parents lie in wait for readers. Following, maybe stumbling, in the footsteps of James Thurber, Robert Fulghum, and William Bennett, the author tells stories about raising kids and being raised, about strange science and even stranger istory. Written to be edifying, the stories are true, they have points (sometimes morals), and they entertain. They are perfect for the school teacher who has a few minutes to spend between lessons or until the bell rings, and wants a story for his or her students.
These are stories about envy, gun safety, the terrors of parenthood, racism, the pledge to our Flag, uses of magnetism, and digging up a privy. What more could a person ask for?
