Bigger or Better

Some kids down the street are playing a game called "Bigger or Better" for a birthday party. The idea is that they go door-to-door trading up whatever they have for something, well, bigger... or better.

Naturally, when they showed up at the door with a Kungfu Panda toy, I gave them a book. Bigger and better, right? I think so.

So... right now the kids across the street are getting some Roald Dahl in exchange for a Raiders hat (yup, I'm spying), and very soon Goodwill will be receiving a toy panda.

Too cool.

You crack me up! Definitely better if not bigger.

I was so happy when I saw it was going to a house with children, four children!

I've decided I need to find more sneaky ways to get books into kids hands around here.

Wow. Never heard of that game, but I had always kind of had that idea in the back of my head for a PB plot. Wonder if it coudl work?

I totally would have handed them a copy of The Emerald Tablet. How fun!

Casey Something said...

I think it would make a clever picture book, Corey. I can imaging a few ways of doing it!

In retrospect, I wish I would have given them the Emerald Tablet and then replaced it for myself, PJ. If I get another opportunity, I will!

I got a kitten in a Bigger and Better game from the 60s. She was the sweetest cat for 16 years. I love that kids are still playing the game!

How fun is that, Cynthia? You have me wondering though, what did you give for the kitten? Must have been something bigger. I can't see getting much better!
