Lost Book Title Found: Success At Last

For years I’ve been trying to find a book I read as a child. I’ve asked other book lovers about it, describing it as a story about a modern girl who discovers a colony of Lilliputians near her home. No one could help me. The frustration was woxxiboggling.

Today, thanks to a miracle called Adderall, I trotted on over to Amazon, put “Lilliputians” in the search box, selected “Children’s Books” as a filter – and found the book in 30 seconds flat. It’s amazing how much time people waste by being cerebrally handicapped, otherwise known as, “How can someone so smart be so stupid?”

On the other hand, I am pleased to discover that the book I found so unforgettable turns out to have been written by a favorite and respected author, T. H. White of Arthurian fame. That fact reflects well on my infant literary tastes, I feel. This aspect of the the affair could well be summed up by the phrase, “How can someone so stupid be so smart?”
