But the buffalo with wings they came up with - cute as it was meant to be - inspires me (and my husband) to want to whack the page.
The best way to describe the little beasties? Giant horseflies.
Even though nobody in the White House kitchen would be happy to encounter heavy horseflies hanging about, I don't think (fingers crossed) their presence at the beginning of each chapter will impact anyone's enjoyment of the story. Gosh, I hope not.
They're actually kind of fun now that I think about it. In a funny-looking way.
So, have you seen the giant horseflies hovering in Ollie's latest adventure? Do you have to resist the temptation to swat the book every time you come to a new chapter?
