CroppMetcalfe, local D.C. home improvement company, recently created the comic, "Splash Mob" to illustrate what can happen if a homeowner ignores the telling signs of a plumbing problem in their home.
Trillin brings his trademark wit to the world of children's literature for the first time in this collection of verse. Each poem describes a seemingly mundane element of childhood, from learning to tie shoelaces to zealously collecting stuffed animals. One youthful narrator generously offers up his sister at the doctor's office as a more fitting recipient for a shot, while another explains that "The Grandpa Rule" really means that there are no rules at all for the length of Grandpa's visit. The quiet joys of childhood that Trillin depicts will evoke laughter and perhaps some nostalgia for those who, through the years, have remained young at heart. All ages
