Dear Mantel Man,
I'm sorry to have to break it to you, but your niece Smedley totally has your number.
Tonight after reading our bedtime book (which had more than one mention of super powers) Smedley declared, "Uncle Mantle Man is like a mini version of Grandpa."
"He's just like Grandpa. He could be Mini Wonder Dave!" While I wasn't sure of the logic at all, I wasn't going to miss her explanation, which definitely delivered. I was laughing too hard to catch most of it, but I remember this:
Clip him to your backpack and take him with you!
Don't sit with him too long
or he'll make you learn about MATH!
Press his button and he'll say something grumpy,
but don't press it too many times or he'll make a PURPLE CLOUD!
So, Mini Wonder Dave, will you order your Spandex suit and cape, or shall I?
