Mysteries & Poo

I opened an invoice this morning for a book order we were set to receive any day. I had ordered four of the Batman: Murder at Wayne Manor Interactive Mystery....the invoice indicated we wanted 32! I freaked and called them right away.....the customer service helper assured me that the order hadn't shipped and he changed the quantity ordered. Half an hour later...two giganto boxes arrived with 32 Batman mysteries to be solved....oy vey. Anyways.....I am guessing the four copies we are keeping will fly as everyone is in a Batman mood for some crazy reason ;-) The book requires the reader to sift through police reports, a private journal, maps of Wayne Manor, news clippings, forensic samples, and photographs from family albums (all included throughout the book as removable facsimiles) to solve a mystery of a murder that took place at Wayne Manor. When you think you have it can open the final signature of the book which is sealed at the printer to read the remainder of the story.

We also received DC Superheroes: A How-to-Draw Kit. Comic book fans can learn to draw their fav DC heroes....Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, and Robin. The drawing portfolio includes a 48-page book which leads artists of all levels through techniques, shapes, perspective, figures, and more. With a pencil, pen, ruler and instructional poster, readers can use what they've learned to draw their very own comic book.

And for the gals.....Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls: How to Start a Band, Write Songs, Record an Album and Rock Out! There is an actual Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls located in Portland and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book benefit the camp. The camp has been around since 2001...the book brings the camp's inspiring, hands-on approach and advice from its all-star crew of female musicians to girls everywhere.

And a book that I know many guys in my life will enjoy.....the Poo Log. This book is a journal for recording and studying the wondrous uniqueness of each bowel movement. With handy reference charts, extensive checklists (shape, color, consistency, etc.), interesting nuggets, and screamingly funny illustrations throughout, this journal makes every trip to the can an e-loo-cidating experience. Who knew one could learn so much from poo?
