Comments for Morris and Boris at the Circus
The Morris and Boris books are another set I was introduced to by my husband and his family. I personally don't enjoy them as much as either the Frog and Toad series by Arnold Lobel or the George and Martha series by James Marshall. Morris and Boris's friendship doesn't make any sense in this book. They never seem to like each other and they are always arguing.
In Morris aond Bris at the Circus, Morris decides to join the circus. Before the Ringmaster will hire him he has to prove himself during a show. Boris tries to help Morris do a variety of things (acrobat, lion tamer, performing dog, etc.) and he fails horribly at each task. Part of Morris's problem is he's an idiot and a lot of story is wasted on Boris having to explain things to Morris repeatedly. Morris does finally succeed at the expense of Boris. You can probably guess how.
This morning over breakfast Ian and I finally came up with our Thanksgiving travel plans. For the last four years we've driven down on Thursday to arrive just before dinner. This year with me working from home and my day ending at four in the afternoon we'll make the drive on Wednesday night, arriving at Ian's parent's home around nine or ten. It will be late for Sean but he's old enough to handle staying up that late. Harriet will probably sleep through most of the trip especially if we bundle her up in her car seat.
