It's Number Three Featuring Me!

So it's about time for another book to be shown at my nook. Did you think I would miss a month at my sea? Pfft I have them lined up until well after the Christmas tree. But this one is the longest I have done with the children's book run. And of course it stars little old me, not to mention Cassie.

This time we are out and about,
When we hear a shout.
It is some baboon,
Selling a balloon.

So we try to get some,
As I beat the war drum,
For Pat's birthday.
In real life that is far away.

But for the sake of the story,
We go with it in all its glory.
And of course things don't go swell.
From the pics below can you tell?







Click here to have fun with my rear. 
(You know what I mean. Don't make a scene.)

Yeah, we are in for a fight.
For those balloons made us take flight.
Now we ended up in the wild.
Things don't end up being mild.

So join in on adventure number three,
With me and Cassie.
As we take that anteater down,
And try to get home to our part of town.

There we go, that makes 19 at our show. 20 will come due next month from me. Maybe even 22 will hang from my tree. I guess we shall wait and see as the cat is a busy bee. But more will surely come to pass from my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  4. I loved the excerpt!
    So the anteater's the villain, huh?
    Why do anteaters always have to be the bad guy?

  15. I remember seeing a news story on a guy who floated away with helium balloons strapped to a chair.

    Crazy guy.

    Set off to fly.

    Not sure why.

    Hope he didn't die.
