I loved and recently read the The Thunderbolt Kid - it was ver close to my childhood. The fascinating part to me is how free kids were back then to explore, get into trouble, meet interesting characters and live a bit on the kid edge. Now it seems we protect children so much so they don't have risks at perhaps the cost of having the challenges. But, laugh out loud funny is Bill Bryson's trademark.
That is my curious red dog, I can't find a photo I like at all. So, red dog it is. I see you read a lot of short stories, maybe I should go that way since reading a night puts me asleep. I loved Holiday on Ice, he is such a funny writer, one of my favorites.
