    Judging the book by it's cover?

    And maybe a better question is, why do I care? On second thought, go ahead. Be as wrong as you want and anyone who reads your opinions will just have to guess what the term 'liberal' means to you on a case-by-case basis.
    Man, you people are desperate to clean up the Liberal brand! LOL!

    "How to shop for Oxy?" is a children's book?

    Yes, when you have the narrator dressed in clothes (with his horse) referenced from another historical time period, it is confusing to children that may not be knowledgable enough to know that the two times periods are very distinct.

    Try again. If the book is published as fiction, I'm fine with it.

    Children don't have the same kind of sophistication that adults do. Things should not be marketed to be nonfiction unless it IS nonfiction. That means it needs to be referenced which his book is not. As I already stated, if he wants his book to be a part of fiction there is no problem.

    Children are going to be reading million word The Civil War by Shelby Foote.


    There's nothing wrong with a historically themed children's book, or do you prefer children remain ignorant?

    As I've said, you should read it and speak from an informed position rather than speaking from a disinformed position.
