Mom is finishing up the tubby and it’s almost time for my nightly installment of "The Fellowship of the Ring" for a rapt six-year-old who is not jaded after Power Rangers, Yu Gi Oh, Star Wars and more. In fact, he was rapt for "Treasure Island," "The Chronicles of Narnia," and "The Hobbit." So the first book of the trilogy, while waxing a trifle lush at times with the images, nevertheless is a hit.
Attercop, attercop, old tomnonny!
UPDATE But first there was a hunt for Miss Ellie, the tattered stuffed elephant who is Mr. Boy’s spirit animal, as it were. He will often ask me to put her away when a friend of his comes to play, but he still can’t sleep without her.
