The Whole Kit and Caboodle II
Author Bud Moretz says his "bathroom book" is designed to be read two or three pages at a time. In his first book of similar title, he offered more than 500 life observations. In this version, illustrated by Holly Bradley, he serves up more than 1,000 pithy and humorous observations with heaping helpings of horse sense, philosophy, quips and wisecracks about life. Moretz uses flying pigs named Harry and Bubba in cartoons to show some of his points. Sample observations include the fact that A.M. radio can be used at night and that your wild oats will turn into bran flakes. Moretz also wonders if the moon roofs on cars are really for mooning and claims that he is living proof that insanity can be inherited from your children. Moretz lives in Vilas and is a member of Blue Ridge Electric. Softcover, 144 pages, $22; e-book is $9.99.
