Possibly The Randomest Book You’ll Ever Read

On one of E’s earlier works, Daddy helped him with a short author bio in which it was conveyed that E’s goal is to make 100 books.

He is barrelling toward this goal, let me tell you. He’s kind of obsessed with my stapler.

Here’s a creation from this past week. I love how he’s unencumbered by the fetters of plot, theme, or common threads of any kind, swinging freely between the physical and the metaphysical.

This is the title page. He’s really into stormy weather patterns right now. I’m pretty sure the circular one at the bottom is a typhoon.

Only one of each – no need for overkill.

These names come from his class list, hence the abundance of appropriate vowels.

He makes jump tracks just like this. You’ll notice that spoilers are very important to him – as they are, verily, unto the world.

This looks like he doesn’t understand food groups, but he’s actually been talking quite knowledgeably about them recently. Apparently the colour-code is the critical part.

You have to have a Stuffies page.

And of course you DOUBLE HAVE TO have a Dragons page.

Spoiler alert… this Colours page might just lead to a spinoff book.

I’ve always loved his plane drawings beyond all description.

And the heart-pounding dénouement: CANDIES!

NaBloPoMo Meets 100 Happy Days – Day 1

{Hi everyone! This is yesterday’s post. It was honestly ready to go on the appropriate day, but I have been having major technical difficulties with my blog. So I’m going to sneakily attempt back-publishing it – here’s hoping this silly post will actually post. And there will be Halloween photos – but the technical difficulties extended even unto those, so they will be unfashionably late.}

NaBloPoMo is here! And at this stage of my life, the prospect of writing a real post every day is really daunting. So, inspired by some of my friends, I’ve decided to do 100 Happy Days and practice my pithiness.

For today, I thought you’d like to see this thing that made me grin hugely, courtesy of my charming five-year-old.

He was flying happily along when he saw a giant monster.

Chapter 2: A Monster. So he tried to fly away but it was too late. The monster had already got him. “I’m hungry.”
