Did you catch the thing on NPR about the “downsizing” gags? Take a band, for example, and reduce or lessen the name thusly: The Kingston Duo. Or a musical: Rhode Island! Or a movie: Pride of the Expos. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=101897677
Here are a few Kidlit selections…
The Cat in the Beanie
The Gold-Plated Compass/The Subtle X-acto/The Amber Spy-Pen*
It’s Like This, Rat
The Tiaga Book
The Carob War
Richard Scarry’s What Do People Do All Afternoon?
Try it. It’s fun.
*Did you have a spy pen when you were a kid? Man, that was some of the best money I ever spent.
