Children's book week

by Ted Hoffman

My brother works as a teacher in a local state middle school. Last week was Children's Book Week. After a few days of events, the young tikes were asked to come to school on Friday dressed as one of their favorite literary characters.

It will come as no surprise to anyone who has met any of the nation's children, that rather than the school being swamped by Huckleberry Finns and Artful Dodgers, almost all the children came dressed as 'kid with jeans and t-shirt' from a book they couldn't remember when questioned, a couple came as Darth Vader, and one pair came dressed as Ant and Dec.
