Could Be Worse
by James Stevenson
Picture book
* * * Stars (Pretty good)

Grandpa always says the same thing, “could be worse,” whenever his grandkids tell him something. They assume that it’s because he leads a very uninteresting life. To spice things up, he tells them a story of his previous evening – when he was abducted from his bed, horrible things happen to him, and he finally returns shaken, but alive. Their response? I bet you can guess… Funny, but completely unrealistic. Grandpa needs to work on his tall tales, but as a first attempt at leading an interesting life – not bad.
