Thanks to Scholastic Parent and Child Magazine: they included Being A Pig Is Nice: a child's eye-view of manners in their FUN FINDS FOR MAY! read their review here. I found my own fun find of May... some random person I don't know posted this... if you want a laugh check it out here. Ahh, how very timely the release of Being A Pig Is Nice is turning out to be. (Evil violins here.) Yes, coming as it does right at the very peak of SWINE FLU pig season... (maniacal laughter.) (Clever marketing on Random House's part.) (Wait. Did they cause Swine Flu do you think?) But whether or not it IS actually nice to be a pig is up for discussion. can you get pig flu if U R a pig?

Nothing like a crocodile with your coffee first thing in the morning... Here's one of my favorite things... well two. Lewis Carroll and his Crocodile: THE CROCODILE How doth the little crocodile Improve his shining tail, And pour the waters of the Nile On every golden scale! How cheerfully he seems to grin, How neatly spreads his claws, And welcomes little fishes in, With gently smiling jaws! Lewis Carroll (1823-1898) From The Hunting of the Snark and Other Poems and Verses. Lewis Carroll. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1903.

S J Perelma's first collection of essays, Dawn Ginsbergh's Revenge, came out in 1929. Groucho Marx wrote him a letter that said: "From the moment I picked up your book until I put it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it." Genius!
