Not sure we’ve ever addressed this issue here at the blog. Nice to be on this list.

As for Bernie’s big crooked nose: What’s it for? Just beauty? Is that enough? I tried to think about that, got as far as: Why not? Hey! Beauty was enough!

Beginnings (More)

On Sundays we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Peter Abrahams books in chronological order, including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. Here from 2012 – #28, THE OUTLAWS OF SHERWOOD STREET: STEALING FROM THE RICH. For middle-grade readers, but adults with fake ID can take their chances. My first foray to the edge of the supernatural.

At first I thought it all began with a foul – if an elbow to the head’s not a foul, then what is? – but I figured out, maybe not as soon as I should have, that the beginning had come a little earlier.

5.0 out of 5 stars  – Chet and Bowser – Aug. 10, 2018.
on ARF:
I’ve been a little down this week and then I had an idea – Chet and Bowser. I’ll read a Chet book and then a Bowser book. Of course, Chet wins out because he has more books.(I think he’d like the whole winning part.) Anway, thanks for your wonderful books. They really have given me a boost this week.
