Opening Soon!

Lately I have been greatly concerned about the recent findings that indicate the sad fact that children [toddlers / pre-schoolers] are no longer interested in great Russian literature.
No! All they think about is TOYS!
TOYS! TOYS! TOYS!
So I have decided to open a new store, in my little corner of the world.... [so far, all I have is the sign].... but I am looking for the best property.... the prime real estate, and then I am building my dream store!
I just want to give a little bit back to the community. Do my part, you know?
I am convinced that kids need to read these great classic stories about little Anna Karenina and Warren Peace.
Think it will catch on?

Ahhh... one of my favorite novels of all time!
Stick with it. What I mean is, it's a daunting novel, but completely rewarding

Ah, finally, someone's bringing back the good oldfashioned wooden Tol's toys! ;-)

I'm in for a Tolstoy bobble-head.

Michele, we are all out of these, but we DO have in stock a Turgenev fart-pillow!

Do you have anything in a DosTOYevsky?

cipriano said...

My God Stefanie, that is brilliant.
Yes, I've definitely gotta have a DosTOYevsky section!
