Returning to the Exquisite Corpse

Alack, alas, I have fallen behind with The Exquisite Corpse Adventure.  Oh well, no matter. For those just tuning in, this is an initiative of the Library of Congress; a shaggy dog of an adventure created by some of the biggest and best children’s literature folks.  Every couple of weeks there is a new episode beautifully illustrated and available for reading and listening.

Since I greatly appreciate the use of the word “meanwhile” as a way to change the subject*, gummy bears, Lemony Snicket, and new roads taken, I delighted in the latest episode: “Meanwhile, Near a Meadow.”

*Beautifully demonstrated by Jules Feiffer in his picture book titled — what else? — Meanwhile.
