I've heard of it, of course, and thought it sounded charming and interesting.
Today while at Costco (sigh, sometimes I just really love Costco) I saw the book. I immediately thought "Oooh, let's have a look!" and opened it up.
While I opened it up randomly and saw things like knots, and fossils, and Jolly Rogers (interesting, indeed) when you get technical and look at the Contents.... well, it seems a marvelous thing, indeed.
Here are a few:
The Greatest Paper Airplane in the World
The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
How to Play Stickball
Making a Bow and Arrow
Mountains of the United States
The Golden Age of Piracy
Making a Go-Cart
Spies - Codes and Ciphers
And much, much more.
I am terribly excited about this, I am sure you know.
While I looked at it with Trev in the store, he was a bit thrown off by the word "dangerous", and is a little leery.
But almost everything in the book he has already expressed an interest in, so I am sure we (and me, if not he) will find much to savor in this book.
