Publisher's Summary

Remember 6th grade, where the question, "Are you cool?" takes on cosmic proportions? Acclaimed storyteller Bill Harley revisits the excitement (or was it torture?) in these hilarious true (or at least real!) stories. His wacky tales capture the essence of what it feels like to be a kid, and will delight and engage children and parents alike. The collection includes the title piece "Cool in School," "Forget That Girl," and "Zanzibar."
(P) and ©1987 Round River Records

Bill Harley is like salted peanuts...

...you just keep wanting more. I had my doubts when a friend of mine recommended him but now I'm a fan. If you had fun when you were a kid, spend some time with this audio. If you didn't have fun when you were a kid then REALLY spend some time with this audio. He will make you feel much better about about the entire childhood experience. WARNING: If you listen to this audio you will probably find yourself singing the 'Zanzibar Song' uncontrollably thereafter. Listen to it on a Saturday so you can have a day to stop singing it before you go back to work.
