For a party later on during the World Cup, I dug out the little German flags to decorate these melon balls. The flags were actually leftovers from the European Soccer Cup two years before...hey, who said keeping stuff doesn't pay off! ;-)
A fascinating novel about a twelve-year old boy who makes maps of everything. He travels by himself from Montana to Washington, D.C. to receive an award from the Smithsonian Institute for his drawings. The entire novel is accompanied by drawings that relate to the plot. Truly amazing.
