  1. Wow, that’s some selection of books, Fats! The only one I was familiar with was Dan Yaccarino’s DOUG UNPLUGGED. Never heard of the Commander Toad books at all, and they look like a popular series.

  3. I really like the Commander Toad books. I remember reading them to my kids and trying to spin them as a serious story, but they caught me every time.
