In which Frodo and Sam have an almost unbelievable number of close shaves and near misses. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be glad when we stop hearing about gray ashy dark grim horrible Mordor.

The very next chapter is called “Mount Doom”, so I think Frodo’s quest is nearing its end! I’ll record it as soon as humanly possible :)

Arabic translation of Grammar-Land

February 24th, 2015 — 3:06pm

Hind, a young woman from Yemen, recently let me know that she had made a video translation of one of my Grammar-Land chapters into Arabic! When you watch the video, you hear my voice and can read along in Arabic. Pretty cool! :)

Hooray for Public Domain and the internet!

A commenter has just let me know that you can now purchase an ebook of “Poo-Poo and the Dragons” with the original illustrations! So if you enjoyed my recording, please support this publisher and buy your own copy of this wonderful classic.
