For once Calvin seems to be interested in reading. Had he said just this much, his Dad might have got a heart attack.
However, Calvin is Calvin. Its not his Maths or English book that he is so anxious to get hold of. Its a book named 'Commander Coriander Salamander and 'er SingleHander BellyLander'. Try saying this aloud. I love the way it sounds.
But Dad's expression in the last picture doesnt look like as though he enjoyed the rhyming very much. In fact he has a better prospect of tackling Architects and Children's books authors.
