John and JG will be happy to learn that Sam picked up this book yesterday, thanks to the generosity of his great-grandmother Mimi. Now he knows things like “Essential Gear” (e.g. Swiss army knife, compass, handkerchief), how to make “The Greatest Paper Airplane in the World,” a basic rundown of many “Famous Battles” (spread through two chapters), various “Secret Inks,” “Making a Bow and Arrow,” etc. When he’s allowed to go outside by himself all this will really come in handy.
PS I didn’t see a chapter about bottle bombs, but I can tape some instructions in the back.
