“Can you draw a picture on the blackboard when somebody doesn’t want you to?” asked the rooster promptly.
“Yes,” answered Kenny, “if you write them a very nice poem.”
“What is an only goat?”
“A lonely goat,” answered Kenny.
The rooster shut one eye and looked at Kenny.
“Can you hear a horse on the roof?” he asked.
“If you know how to listen in the night,” said Kenny.
“Can you fix a broken promise?”
“Yes,” said Kenny, “if it only looks broken, but really isn’t.”
The rooster drew his head back into his feathers and whispered, “What is a very narrow escape?”
“When somebody almost stops loving you,” Kenny whispered back.

Celebrity sighting!

I ran across Tock from THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH while out on a walk today. He was just chillin’ in someone’s front yard. For a legendary celebrity, he’s just a normal guy. Not stuck up at all!

Stephen and Callum=wolf brothers

On the May 11 episode of The Colbert Report, America’s most patriotic pundit Stephen Colbert revealed that he had been raised by a North American Gray Wolf named Lucan.

Stephen and Callum from THE BOY WHO HOWLED share a lot in common, perhaps even a taste for raw spleen and pancreas. Wolf brothers for the win!
