The Vine: April 5, 2013
I need clear/translucent sticky notes, preferable outside of the square shape or at least fairly large. I do not want a colour tint, though maybe a very minimal amount of colour will do.
Daiso used to sell them, but I bought all their stock a few years ago (a whole three packs) and now they no longer carry them. Muji carries them, and these are absolutely perfect, but $8.50 plus shipping for only 20 sheets is too steep. I already know of Avery Clear note tabs, but I’d prefer no tab at all.
I have an ask the readers question about a novel I read in primary school. It was for readers around 8-10 years old I think, and I read it in maybe 1983.
It was set in NYC and was about a class of students in a primary school, maybe around grade 5 (sorry, I'm Australian, don't know what you call that in the States ["fifth grade" -- SDB]) all from different walks of life, who might have been put in remedial English study. They were given a thesaurus and shared it amongst themselves going on all sorts of adventures, getting to know and understand each other. I remember the rich girl had her housekeeper wrap up some lamb chops for a picnic and she might have also have some puppies or kittens, and I think there was a peanut-butter-in-hair situation at one point.
I remember loving this book and it I would love to share it with my niece.
Any ideas what it might be, Tomato Nation? Google has failed me.
