I have long wanted this book and I have just today ordered it:
Right now nothing is going on in Facetious. I am out on a quilting-jag and simply pass by poor Ariel which has a skeleton lying in the dining room, a sorry state of affairs but fortunately, the family does not yet live there since it isn't finished. They are safely esconsed in the Imperial, Facetious's premier hotel which, alas, will never be built because I don't have the space for it.
At least they are spared the indignities and covert goings on (aka "the coffin") at the site of their future home.
But when this book arrives I suspect things WILL begin to happen again.
I just took a gander at the insides of this book thanks to Amazon.com's feature that allows it. WOW! One's jaw drops and the eyes glaze over. I think there will be loads and lashings of inspiration in this volume.
