Read this and sigh or go away and don't come back

Zo got Oliver Jeffers, Lost and Found for her birthday. It's a new, board book edition as opposed to the paperback one from 2006...the one that was infinitely more tearable. She loves it, and gets ridiculously excited to read it. She even squealed at the notion last night. It's so cute that you have to stop and say, "now holy s#!t that's cute," which as we all can imagine is pretty darn cute if it makes you do that. God, I love using that, anyway...LOVE it. But really, anyway, June and I were reading Zo the book for the first time last night and we flip to the page (WARNING - Spoiler) where the penguin and boy are reunited and the hig artwork made us both sigh...both of us! at the same time. It must have been nauseating to hear. The painting is even more cute, or cuter in this particular case, than Zo's squeal...maybe three or four more times cuter. So cute we stopped and said, "now holy s#!t that's cute too." And that never happens twice like that.

If you don't own any Oliver Jeffers work then punch yourself in the face and when you pick yourself up off of the floor, go out and get some...or if you live in Canada go ooout and get some. Just get some.

That's all I have to say about that.

That is Julia's favorite book and WAS the item I was so slow in sending for Christmas/Zoey's birthday. Now I need to get off my bum and find another gift....

She is now getting Julia's favorite shirt that has been outgrown, but was well-loved and one of my favorites.
