    I just spent hours reading those books - what fun! The language is lovely. I don't know what some of the ingredients are - what is paste-board? And all the different glues, and concoctions. My friends kids are always "bored" and so are taken to the amusement park etc. instead of amusing themselves. A shame!

  2. Our equivalent of paste board is Poster board or cardstock.
