He likes Bo and Gari and their way cool teacher Miss Loupe, but most of all, he loves all the little green army men! They came spilling out of the story and have invaded the alphabet soup kitchen.
Whether they are busy with breakfast maneuvers,
steadfastly guarding the marmalade,
checking out the Great Pumpkin,
securing giant egg cups,
or hurling raisins instead of grenades,
these guys know where the action is.
Cornelius wants everyone to read this inspiring, important story and experience the joy of LGAM too, so we are sponsoring a little giveaway.
