DO remember where you keep your toes.
DON’T balance an elephant on your nose.
Packed with completely useless advice and jolly illustrations, this charming rhyming picture book is a simple, silly guide to life, which will enlighten and entertain silly children (and silly adults) everywhere!

If you’ve lost yourself, you need someone else to show you the way home.
When Thomas Quinn is eight-years-old, he asks a promise of an Irish sea captain: “If ever I should become like me father will you dunk me under the water ’til I cannot breathe? Will you, sir, please?”
The captain agrees.
Ten years later, Thomas is a womanizer, a thief and a drunk, who remembers a promise, but doesn’t know what it was about or who it was with. While flirting with a young woman, he is accosted by her grandfather who knows far more about him than he should. Thomas runs and goes on a drunken binge where he is knocked out by someone wielding a club.
When he wakes, he finds himself tied to a ship’s yardarm by his ankles and is dunked over and over again into Galway Bay until he cannot breathe. Only then does he learn the young woman’s grandfather is the captain of the ship. Kidnapped and taken out to sea, Thomas fights with the sailors, steals ale from the hold, runs from a battle with a female pirate and falls in love with the captain’s granddaughter. But it isn’t until he finds out who he really is that Thomas’ restless soul finds its way home.
I also noticed a few others set back to free. If you haven’t gotten these in the past, you might want to snatch them up before the prices go back up.
Remember, you don’t have to have a Kindle to read these. You can read them on your computer, iPhone, BlackBerry, iPad, Droid, or Windows 7 phone.
Amazon changes prices quickly, so if you want these free books, be sure to grab them now. I haven’t read any of these, so I’m not personally recommending them. I just wanted to let you know that they were available for free.
