The kids are like, “books are boring!”
"Boring!?" says Mr. Bobo. "Books are an adventure!"
Then he snatches the books away from the kids and fastens them to the bottom of his shoes like skis. He jumps and lands into a crouching position.
"I’m skiing!" screams Mr. Bobo, but the books have a kind of surprise traction against the snowy hill and Mr. Bobo doesn’t go anywhere. He panics for a second and then settles for running around the yard yelling something about snowshoes, but the kids are already inside the house by then.
Later, the kids find out that Mr. Bobo is a soulless demon that lives inside the body of a scarecrow.
