WHY DOES THE WEEKEND seem to go so fast? Maybe it’s because there is so much to do, as the boy in this book discovers. There are crimes to commit (stealing warm biscuits from the kitchen), chores to be done (mowing his bedroom garden), and torture to endure (getting a haircut from a wizard). But there’s fun to be had, too, such as growing icicles in the living room or roasting marsh-mallows with his pet unicorn.
