What mouse doesn't crave speed, danger and excitement?
Well, Ralph's mom for one. Ralph loves his motorcycle, but when
subjected to the indignity of giving rides to squirmy siblings,
he decides to break out and seek his fortunes on the open road.
Oh yes, fortunes AND medium sized boys with peanut butter sandwhiches.
Paul loves all the Ralph books by Beverley Cleary. I enjoy them
too, I can relate to the teenage angst!

Salman Rushdie, for kids? Yup, he is a master
of the fable, and if the Bad Guys ever succeed in their fatwa,
something marvelous will have been lost from the Earth. Parents
("of a certain age") and their children will cherish
this story of a storyteller who looses his "gift of gab"
and the adventures his son has visiting the Sea of Stories to
get it back. Julie and I love this story, as does Paul.

The Magic Schoolbus, a great educational and fun
The Magic Schoolbus Gets....
$3.15 each - It's a Wild Ride!
Dad likes these, and is saving them for later,
since they are limited editions and may not be available in ten
years when he's ready...
Cadet Kirk (Star Trek - Starfleet Academy Series)...
The adventures of Captain Kirk when he was a young cadet.
I also recommend the Young
Indiana Jones series to parents of teens: adventure with
authentic historical context. The kids don't even have to know
they are learning! Sadly, both series are out of print, but often
a used one will be for sale on Amazon.com.
