which has not got any books in it but is unexpectedly crafty.

Inset Day (Kids remain off school) and it looks like this:

rain's back all righty.

Thankfully this arrived:

Not, I hasten to add because I had any burning desire to clean the floor (although it IS quite fun) but because it was full of interesting nobbly shaped packaging boxes. Which proved the perfect complement to the small army of puppet people we have been painting over the last couple of days inspired by these elegant examples.

Ours have been slightly less elegant (witness Bill's sparkly, Chapman-brothersesque, naked burglar):
But now have splendid new homes with which to pursue Love, Life and Warfare:

Baddy Base (home to Mad Professor Doom, Orange Monstero and Mr. Mystery amongst others)-

Goody base- defended only by the worryingly named Goofy Guy and Sparkly Sidekick-
The Townsfolk caught between the two (at least they can go on occasional open top bus tours and enjoy the local skate ramp).

Welcome to Goof City.
Normal book reviewing activities will be resumed tomorrow, apologies for hiatus. You may wish to go by Playing by the Book and visit her comprehensive Carnival link up of books about the seaside today; there's some corkers to add to your wish list.


  1. Can I please come and play too? The wooden people and their landscapes/homes look terrific!

  2. perhaps our respective wooden families can go on cultural exchanges? Goofy City is available for twinning.

  3. Nothing quite like unexpected craftiness. I LOVE LOVE LOVE what you guys made. Wonderful!

    Thank you for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!
