Review:
This is a wonderful book from one fo the most noted writers of the 20th century, There is an astounding beauty of some of text in this book where he describes the feeling of longing when the sailor leaves the woman he is having a relationship with. Also the description of a mindset of the adolescent main character is so uncanily accurate. The person who complained that this book is perverse obviously has a lot of potential to as yet fulfil in their character. Hopefully they can come arouind to the full beauty in this and Mishima's other work.

Review:
Wizzil the horrible hag is bored stiff until her parrot not-so-sweetly suggests that she amuse herself by making somebody suffer, specifically the Frimps. Taking the bird's advice, she transmogrifies into a common housefly and zizzes over to Frimp Farm. Old DeWitt Frimp, who deplores flies, is armed with a flyswatter and misses the fly-witch by a hair. Wizzil vows revenge. Now, at least no longer bored, she decides to turn herself into a glove and lie in wait for the unwitting DeWitt. Sure enough, he puts it on right away, considering himself a lucky man to have made such a discovery. With the glove on, he soon finds that he can hit everything b...

Review:
Miss Darling of room 22 is a very special teacher indeed. When asked by her students if they could have "a truly awesome classroom pet," Miss Darling replied, "Yes! Or better yet,/Let's choose a whole pet alphabet." So, from Amanda Anaconda to the zorilla, an unexpected pet (the class thought a zorilla would be a kind of gorilla--"a warmhearted ape with plenty of spunk./Surprise! A zorilla is only a skunk."), room 22 becomes a veritable menagerie of some rather unusual critters. Take the electric eel, for example. Please don't ask to feel Our electric eel, Because, if you bug him, ... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
There's nothing like those first-day-of-school jitters, and when you're the new kid on the block, it's even more nerve-racking. So imagine how it would feel to be the new kid on the planet! Participants in a galactic space exchange program, Johnny Smith (a.k.a. Blast Off Boy) from Earth and Blorp Glorp from planet Meep are preparing for day 1 in their respective new elementary schools. Blast Off, visiting Meep, is simultaneously blasé and anxious. Blorp, on Earth, is so excited he keeps floating up to the ceiling. The story alternates between these two boys' points of view, describing in all-too-painful detail that new-school feeling of just plain not ... Rest of this review on the detail page
