As a child I remember the baited anticipation involved with the arrival of the Sweet Pickles bus to my house. I envisioned a rolling treasure trove of books and activity sheets that would fill my pre-Nintendo rainy days of adolescence. I was devastated, however, to find out that there was no actual green bus, but instead our friendly mailman, would be delivering tools of literacy to my parents front steps. This was troublesome to any young child that that also believed that the mannequins in his local Dillards would would turn into a real life person after all of the shoppers left like Jeffery from Today’s Special. Let’s face it, I was a gullible lad.
The New Orleans Hornets, however, are not ones to prey on the fantastical dreams of a child like the Sweet Pickles sadists, they do in fact have a their own Booktastic Bus to bring reading comprehension to the masses. And unlike Sweet Pickles, they aren’t dangling the promise of word searches and jumbles to get you to read…no, they are using much sexier methods…
