Jamie and his "Flanimals" book :)

When I was in England a couple of weeks ago, Uncle Derek gave me a book that he thought Jamie might enjoy. It's called "Flanimals" and was written by Ricky Gervais (from the UK series "The Office" and "Extras"). I have to say, Uncle Derek hit the nail right on the head when picking this one out; it's right up Jamie's street! It has the strangest creatures in it, along with amazing illustrations and detailed descriptions of each Flanimal. So far Jamie's favorite Flanimal is the Offledermis. He has been laughing so hard at these creatures and the vivid descriptions (and so have we); Iain and I have read this book to him every night since I got back from England!
I did some web-surfing and found some more of the Flanimals books on's UK site; I ordered them and they arrived today, which is perfect timing since I can wrap them for Jamie's 7th birthday on Thursday! He doesn't even know there are other Flanimals books...I can't wait to see his face! I love to see kids so excited about books!
