Friday Funny – Text-Spelling

I’d like to credit the cartoonist but I can’t find the original. Here is where I found it where the blog author points out that the student just needs the right reading strategy.

Unmistakably Seuss – Definitely Geisel

Enjoy the few I’ve embedded here and then head over to Huff Post Books to see many more and read all about the work gathered at the Mandeville Special Collections Library.

The Wisdom of Calvin and Hobbes

I can think of few books in my library that have had been as perennially popular as Bill Watterson‘s Calvin and Hobbes series. The principled and reclusive Watterson, who, since 1995 has gone on to other things, has the enviable gift of being able to combine sheer visual delight and entertainment with pithy observances like, “Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us”. Edd McCracken has gathered Sixteen Things Calvin and Hobbes Said Better Than Anyone Else for our enjoyment.

Friday Funny: Overdue Books


Thank you Mr. Stratton, whoever you are. Your cartoon is all over the net, but I can’t find  anything about you, unless this is your book (in that case RIP).
