Remember that drum set you bought your nephew for Christmas a few years ago?

Your brother does.
Aside from being expensive, amusements like drum sets and pianos are hard to carry around with you and take many hours of painful practice to learn.
In Me and My Shadows there is a gift that is easy to learn, educational, physically beneficial, and always "right at hand" to provide amusement. It is fueled by your imagination.
Buy this book. Give it to your nephew for his birthday. Buy several. Don't neglect your niece. Your relatives will be pleased and excited by this gift that will give endless pleasure and amusement to children of all ages. Where else could you find something this good? It's even a perfect gift to give to yourself!
Think of all the hours of enjoyment you can get from having this simple skill and this portfolio of characters at your command!

Me and My Shadows is much better than a drum set.

Me and My Shadows gives detailed instructions on how to produce 32 basic shadow puppet figures:
ideal for anytime  gift, christmas gift, girl scout, cub scout, boy scout skit, idea, craft, kindergarten, kindergarten lesson plan or Church youth group. Also a great bit of nostalgia for seniors.
