While I submit that no one in their right mind gives a kid a harmonica–even with a how-to book–I got the chance to poke around the Klutz site recently and there are definitely some cool new options from one of my favorite childhood mainstays. My favorite is easily The Encyclopedia of Immaturity, which actually may be a little more fun for me than for the kids. Where else can you get bad jokes plus directions on how to make shrunken heads all in the same volume?

That’s my kind of gift. Oh, and my kids’. -Mir
