(Karen would like to make a correction to something she said during our conversation. It was Richmond, British Columbia, not Riverside that came to PPLD and told them to save seconds, minutes, and hours. She regrets that she couldn't remember the name of the translator of The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norm Juster. It was translated into Portuguese by Jorio Dauster. #NameTheTranslator )
