My son's birthday was last week. Months ago he wrote up a wish list and stuck it on the fridge. And while it includes requests for the following:
a million "Vinnila"Cokes
an Elvis wig
and (I'm not making this up) new siblings named Sam the Horse, Spike, Pedro, and Lily,
there were also a number of books included:
Hank the Cow Dog #57: The Disappearance of Drover -- not available until mid-April
Diary of a Wimpy Kid #6 -- next installment in this series (not yet available)
NERDS #3 -- next installment in this series (though -- you guessed it! -- not yet available)
Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat #3 -- not available until July
My son has had to make do with a few book promises and the puppy he already has.
What series are popular with children you know?
