-OUR NEW SUMMER CATALOG-
The Book Elves hate mowing the lawn, and will try just about anything to
make the job easier. As gas prices rose last summer they decided to
experiment with what they termed natural mowers which turned out to mean
livestock. Sheep were very good at clipping grass to a uniform height but
were also very timid and kept taking cover on the front porch whenever the
neighbors let their dogs out.
Goats were less timid, but after they chased the dogs back to the
neighbors yard, the goats proceeded to eat more than 300 tulips and
daffodils that they found there. This year the Book Elves have returned to
machinery for mowing, but before they duct-taped three old Sears Craftsman
riding mowers together and took out an entire row of azaleas, they
finished our new Summer catalog-
"Recent Acquisitions for Summer, 2007" features 131 old and new books on
antiques, arts, and related topics, including ceramics, furniture, glass,
silver, folk art, and much more! You can browse the catalog online-
