A classic. Funny...no, strike that---hilarious, and even better than the movie simply because there's more *of* it between its houses than could possibly fit into a full-length motion picture. Many wordsmiths have aspired to reach the same level of perfection seen in this mixture of punster, conflict, fancy and valor, but none have succeeded. I first read this in high hall AP Literary works, and I've read it many times more over the lifetimes (most recently to my kids). If you've never read this booklet, chunk off suitable now and get to the nearest bookseller or booklet room to get your agencies on a mimeograph!
