Of course, reading this alone, I had a little trouble with the discussion (I am very chatty, after all) but I think I will be reading this aloud to my grandchildren, and discussing it with them. It will be a lovely cold evening activity that we can enjoy together.I found the explanations of some of the terms used very interesting. For example, a repeater, which could be a gun, a belch, or an Alzheimer's patient, is actually a clock. And a brazier does not hold your boobs up, as my granddaughter wondered.
This book has not lifted my Christmas funk, but it has lightened the load a little.
Many thanks to Julie at FSB Associates for sending this book for review!
