  1. Eric Carpenter says:

    Inspired choice!
    I’d say that there is about a 50% chance Mac’s decision mentions Foucault, Barthes, Brecht, or Proust.

  2. Meredith says:

    Extra Yarn is one of my favorite picture books of all time, so I have to say that I’m super psyched for this.

  3. DaNae says:

    POWER IS GOOD!
    POWER IS MINE!

    We are off to a fantastically silly start.

  4. Sondy says:

    Oh, these choices are fun. I just two days ago recommended the Brixton Brothers books to a co-worker after discussing our mutual love of the Three Investigators.

  5. Shoshana says:

    It’s going to be a good year.
