What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.

Not Terrible, but...
The Terrible Two, The Terrible Two Go Wild, was pretty clever. There is no doubt that these guys are funny writers. The only thing is that every adult in the book is a complete idiot! I mean, I have to say that I find the principal to be a sympathetic character and I like the characters enough that I want to see how this develops and I do care! And I am not ripping on how adults are portrayed because of any moralistic high-ground here, it's just that it doesn't seem realistic. I mean, I hope that there is at least ONE half-way-non-idiot adult in the lives of these kids! On the other hand, didn't all of the adults in Charlie Brown have a seriously hard time communicating? So it happens! Still I can recommend this series!
