  1. These one star reviews are very fun. Yes, I’ve got this one.

  2. This is one of my favorite features in the blogosphere!

  3. Oh, does it rhyme with a rat in the vat?

    Great find, Travis!

  4. My son loves that book and the sequel too but it’s funny how politically incorrect it would be today. Right?
