This is educational

Every day the small guy has to fill out his homework exercise book with a description of the book he's currently reading, and do his spelling words. He's quite a good speller so is allowed to choose his own words from the dictionary: recent choices have included 'critique', 'corrupt', 'pessary', 'muscovado' and 'Freudian'.

Here's a recent homework page featuring a description of a reading book he's really enjoying, the possibly slightly unsuitable S.C.U.M., by Danny Katz.

"I like this book because it has funny bits like a guy sticking a red hot poker up someone's bum.* 
*This is educational because it was by Shakespear."

There you go.
