(He also thinks footnotes are for jokes - well the odd joke - Ok I laughed when reading them :D Best I can say about this book is buy it and read it, read it with your kids, your grandkids, your grandma and grandpa. It'll appeal to all ages from 11 to 111 This book really is like no other, it's a book about friendshi ...more
