Q:  What is your favorite memory surrounding books?
A:  I don't know if this is a favorite but it sure was the first thing that popped to my mind.... Do you remember Encyclopedia Brittanica? There was a whole collection that came out in the late 70s or early 80s. It had everything on the planet in these books, and I shit you not, they were the bees knees to me. I would read them over and over again.  I couldn't get enough of them. I even got in trouble once for trying to take one out of the house with me. (I was going to a friends.) Yup, I loved those encycolpedias and wish I stil had them.

  2. Hi Freda! The Cemetery Boys are popping up everywhere. Maybe I should take a look at it and see what it's all about.

    Yes! I do remember the Encyclopedia Britannica! I actually have a full set at school in the library. The kids still love browsing through it.

    Have a good weekend, Freda!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
