1. Thomas' Second 1112th Story



1112.     Once upon a time, there was a robot.  His named was Red Rollie Robot.  He had a remote control like bones.  It was like a skeleton.  And the robot had zero hairs.  The robot rolled with his wheels on the road.  And he ate chocolate.  Red chocolate.  Red was the robot’s favorite color.  Because robots loved the letter “R”.  R is for red and robots.  And Thomas was the robot-maker.

8. Book 363


Rumpelstiltskin, from Grimm's Fairy Tales, illustrated by William Dugan, Little Golden Book, 1958.

Rumpelstiltskin has never been my favorite Fairy Tale.  The miller was a braggart, the daughter was kind of whiney, and the king was horrible.  The only person who seemed halfway decent was Rumpel.  And he didn't fare very well.  Although in the daughter's defense, I would have schemed to keep my firstborn, too.

This telling of the fairy tale is quite good.  I was very amused by the William Morris reference. The illustrations for this version of Rumpelstiltskin are quite lovely and make the story worth the re-read.

9. Book 362

Morning Thoughts, by Louise Nottingham, 2014.

I have odd chunks of time throughout the day -- five minutes when I am waiting for the bus to circle the neighborhood after picking up my son; fifteen minutes when I am waiting for the bus to drop off my son; five minutes here and there when I'm baking or waiting for a load of laundry to finish.  There is not really enough time to get immersed in a book with a story.  But these poems are a perfect length for that time.

I grab my coffee if it's still morning, or water if it's afternoon, and I sit down with this book.  It's like sitting down with an old friend.  It's like those short snippets of conversation you have when you only have a few minutes, but it feels like enough because you are talking with a friend. 

That is exactly what these poems are like.

10. Book 361


Thomas and Gordon, by The Rev. W. Awdry, Scholastic, 2001.

This story was one of the first Thomas stories we read to our son when he was very young -- around one or so.  Now his is five and reading a bit on his own, and this story is still charming.  And funny.
