I loved the book jacket, was intrigued by the summary inside, considered checking it out, then thought to myself- oh it's probably just nice looking on the outside, and that's all.
And then I come on this little thing called the internet to visit many of your lovely blogs, only to realize that my little find in the library was not a little find but an excellent find. And I passed it up.
After that, EVERYTIME I went back to the library it had been checked out. Until last week.
I yanked it off of that shelf as quickly as I could, hurriedly walked to the checkout (lest someone else who had been waiting around for it notice me and steal it away), and then completely devoured each word.
I love Oskar. And I would buy one of his inventions.
I am particularly fond of the chemically treated shower water that pretty much turns your skin into a mood ring.
That would be pretty awesome. Not to mention hilarious.
It would be like living in the cartoon Doug.
All this to say
