ISN'T IT FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God, I used to LOATHE reading Thomas books, no number of regional or character accents or faux profanity inserted to jazz it up a bit could alleviate the sheer grinding dullness and ordinariness of them.

Who's with me?

me too, so what have you moved onto now?

Captain Underpants ... still a novelty

all kind of other things ... Tomi Ungerer books, Quentin Blake, Anthony Browne, more wordy Richard Scarry that we read together. No sodding, prissy, pedestrain engines chugging aimlessly around an Ayryan land that time forgot.
