in many homes and classrooms everywhere."

Expect Rule-Breaking

in all subjects including storytelling, imaging, design,

page layout, traditions, conventions, grammar

In  short, expect the opposite of what you teach;

this might be both interesting and challenging.

expect some odd, peculiar, weird, uncanny, abnormal and curious relationships, along with strangely bizarre interactions between author, readers, and characters.
