"The Modern Sisyphus"

Librarian Rating: 13/10

Reviews:

"Unequivocally the best thing to come out of 2016."

"A classic - an enduring testament to the undying spirit of mankind that propels us forward (and backwards, and sideways...)."


"Beaver Eating Cabbage" 

Librarian Rating: 10/10

Reviews:

"Oddly soothing. I'm a big fan."

"The best minute of my life."

"Oh sure - when I shovel food in my mouth with two hands I'm called 'gross,' 'uncouth,' and 'a disgrace.' But when it's a beaver, the two-handed approach is 'adorable.' "
