"English is a marvelously eccentric language," Max said, by way of agreement.

I hope all of you are enjoying my delightful challenges. My new children's book The Circus For Hire is going to be released over the next month or so. This is a great way for my readers to learn more about my characters while also earning a free book. Remember answers go into the comment section.
Happy 4th of July to all of you. Let's celebrate our freedom.
