I feel like this needs a third component -- maybe a personality quirk column, for example: Evil Butler, Addicted to Pokemon.
I haven’t stopped squeeing ever since they announced that we will be getting ten more brand new episodes of SJ! I completely lost it when they posted the trailer because the show looks edgier and beautifully darker.
Recently, io9 listed the 10 SJ must-watch episodes that everybody should be enjoying during the free online streaming of ALL SJ episodes.
Since The Bear & I have recently started an SJ re-watch and have covered the first two seasons, I decided I’d list ten favorite episodes of ours. Shall we?
In no particular order but in all awesomeness, here are the episodes that you need to see:
Do you see the bodies littering the snow-covered landscape? That is who Jack’s competing against. I love the parts where Jack trains himself in an uber-quick course of using his hearing as the primary sense, in order to defeat them!
The Scotsman is a lot of trouble and fun. When they first meet, the SM and SJ do not hit it off right away. Instead, they spent more than half of the episode fighting.
The second time goes better and they work together to rescue SM’s wife. However, my favorite episode happens to be from the SJ comics where the duo are turned into girls by thieving Leprechauns. Don’t believe me? Take a look at that:
Anyway, I think it is okay to say that SJ +SM = One Entertaining Episode!
We find out how big of an impact Jack’s sandals — and culture — have on who he is and there is a new career in foot modelling waiting for him, if he ever gets tired of trying to “get back”!
Here’s what you need to know about this episode:
Samurai Jack: Aku!
Aku: Samurai fool! Your efforts are in vain again. This gateway to the past is once more beyond your…
Aku: …reach? You can fly?
Samurai Jack: No, jump good!

SJ is dropped into a Lewis Caroll-esque world in this episode but more importantly, this happens:
Jack visits an underwater race and has a run in with Aku when they betray him. The beautiful art and the comedy regarding SJ’s love for shrimp made this episode a huge favorite.
Well, these are our favorite episodes. Chime in and let us know if our list agrees with yours!
So, I did not even know who Jim Benton was before picking up this book. Despite the fact that I have seen his work being shared on social media a lot recently. I can honestly say I am now a fan. I thought it was going to be another average artist with poorly done jokes. That was not the case, however, and I am glad I was proven otherwise. While the illustrations were not the best, I still found them to be enjoyable. The jokes, situations, and humor was the real winner of the show, making it the best graphic novel I have read all year.
I just absolutely loved the humor.

My daughter P has taken a break from her book club. There's only so many stuffed toy animal books you can collect without getting a bit jaded. :) Besides, I have several of my own old favorites, that my mom and grandmother used to read to me and my sister when we were children. Also, almost every time we go to the local library, mom buys some old library books on sale. It was among one of those library books that the children found one of their new favorite books. It's about a little boy who can't sleep and wants to go for a walk, bringing his red crayon. He draws a path to walk on and things to visit. Sometimes he ends up in precarious situations and has to think quickly to draw himself out of those situations. One of our old favorite books has become popular as well. It's about a boy who finds a seed blown by the wind. He sows it and a huge, fantastic tree grows from the seed. A sort of elevator is lowered down to him and he can't resist sitting in the velvet covered seat. The elevator takes him up to the top of the tree and there he has some wonderful adventures.
Speaking of the children - to my shame I have to admit that occasionally when they're crying and can't be consoled any other way, I let them watch cartoons on tv. I have looked for and found my own old favorites from when I was a child and a few of those have become their favorites (among them Winnie-the-Pooh). I was never going to let my children use anything with a screen until they were at least four. There go all my good intentions...
I am so glad I read this. It is written in Diary/Journal entries from different a few children/teenagers and bounces between each of their perspectives. There are drawings added that really helped to add to each of the enteries.
Some of the topics will make you laugh, cry, and really think about what it is like to live in close proximity to someone with dementia. In no way is it easy. I loved how each of these children were able to look past the bad and try to remember "good" times.
This is split into sections and at the end of these sections is an activities section with suggestions that are intended to educate and help cope. Some of these ideas are very good and will help give a child the feeling of being involved and hopefully make it easier for them accept their situation.
I really feel that this would help any child in a situation where Dementia has made an impact on their life. It also may help an older person (parent, grandparent, etc) understand how it effects a child, and how a child views what Dementia is. I give this my highest recommendation.
Something that made me laugh:

I recieved an e-copy of this book through Edelwiess in exchange for an honest review.
