Why taradiddles?

According to, a taradiddle is "pretentious nonsense" or "silly pretentious speech or writing," or "twaddle," or even "a fib."

And now . . .
Book recommendation for today: The Small-Mart Revolution, by Michael H. Shuman.

If you're into graphic novels, please consider publications from the new-ish publisher Cinebook Ltd. Check out the Yakari books if you're shopping for young children. They're listed here on
