– here’s a great poem all about everyone’s favorite luxury item, Socks. Ode to my socks
, like box, except without the b and the x. “The Red Wheelbarrow
” is also great so make sure you click that link. Here’s another poem by yours truly, the dynamic duo of awesomeness.
Duct Tape, Cardboard, and a Stapler
What animal makes no noise in a empty room
that’s why duct tape is good for you.
Cardboard too, is great you see
just pick it up, and it’s a jamboree
Lastly is the glorious stapler
king of them all
he’ll bind you, and find you, and play a kazoo.
Books – Here we feel the need to mention a few titles to you that have been brought to our attention. The Foundling’s Tale series, by D.M. Cornish is awesome (he doesn’t like corn I don’t think; after all, with a name like that, it’d be cannibalism). It is about a young boy who grows up in a orphanage in a land of monsters, and monster slayers. If you like slayers, or slaying, or monsters, check them out. They’ll eat your socks off.
[If you liked that poem above try the graphic novel Cardboard, by Doug TenNapel. Click on book covers to find the book in our catalog. -LisaLibrarian]
Random - Speaking of socks, here’s a dog eating socks. Also, speaking of dogs and socks, here’s a little tidbit about the black plague. For all you unknowing fellows and felines, “Ring Around The Rosies” is all about it. Ring around the rosie is what the beginning of the plague looked like on your body. Pockets of posies were used to cover up the omnipresent odor of death (they thought it caused the disease). Then they fall down “dead.”
