Jack and his classmates each made a flat version of themselves and mailed the little mini-mes to friends and relatives. I was honored to be Jack's chosen host, and received Flat Jack in yesterday's mail. A letter from the teacher instructs me to treat the flat as if Jack were really visiting me. "You are encouraged to take the flat places, take pictures with it and write to the child about the adventures you share..." Jack also included his own letter, and I quote it verbatim:
Dear Ant Cathy,
Thank you for ugrieing to take care of me. Let me watch a-lot of TV and eat lots of frute snacks.
So welcome Flat Jack to The Cath in the Hat, where I'll be blogging about our adventures.
