Cryptid Club

Cryptid Club is a book collection of Sarah Andersen's series of comics about fictional/mythical creatures. The art style is cute but with a sarcastic twinge, and the humor leaves a lot of space for beats and reading between the lines (and glances) on the page. Overall this was a delight and a quick read, since it's a short comic series, and I loved it. Recommended.

Plus, the cover glows in the dark!

This post's theme word is peritext (n), "the material surrounding the main text of the book, such as covers, preface, bibliography, colophon, etc." The Cryptic Club peritext is delightful and includes an author-bio-style glossary in the back with pictures and descriptions of all starring cryptids.

What are you thankful for?

I take attendance by having the students answer a question.

What are you thankful for?

Many common thanks went out to:

  • friends
  • family
  • individual specific siblings
And more general thanks for:
  • visual studio code
  • being alive
  • forgiveness
  • the indomitable human spirit
  • everyone that ever offers me help
  • pass/fail

Overall it was a very positive group, everyone found something very nice to be thankful for!

This post's theme word is grumbletonian (n), "a habitual complainer." The grumbletonian antagonist season is upon us!
