… on the Chet and Bernie series:

Every time I recommend Chet & Bernie, I always get prolific thanks… I’ve read the series three times and enjoyed them every time.

[Prolific thanks – who wouldn’t want some?]


Punch Lines


March 12th, 2021 Posted 7:23 am

Woke up thinking about punch lines, who knows why. In cartoons the set up is the picture and the punch line is the caption. Some punch lines stand on their own, like “Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, what did you think of the play?” In the Chet and Bernie series I have a feeling I sometimes do set ups only, leaving the punch line to you, the readers. I’ll search for an example or two tomorrow, but for now thanks, readers, for pitching in!

Yesterday we had this very nice post from Sharon Rae, re Song For Chet, the song from Heart of Barkness:

“I played that song via YouTube, to my eighth-grade students and then told him about the books. And a couple of them wanted to know if they were in our Middle School library and started looking the books up. All hail Chet and Bernie for getting kids to read!”

Has anyone else introduced kids to C&B? What do you think is the right age level, below which it wouldn’t be appropriate?

Today how about Song For Chet, the song from Heart of Barkness? Emmy winning Bob Edwards made the song and video happen, Mitch Watkins wrote the music and played guitar, Gene Elders played the wonderful fiddle solo, and I handled the words.
