Baited Breath

We're waiting with turkey-baited breath for the big date! December 6th is the launch date according to Peachpit but Amazon has us at December 16th. Either way, what could be a better gift than some learning-laden games for the holidays?

As a side note, we had to look up "baited breath" (which is also spelled "bated") out of cat-like curiousity. And it turns out there's a darkly humorous related poem, by Geoffrey Taylor.

It's called "Cruel Clever Cat:"

Sally, having swallowed cheese,
Directs down holes the scented breeze,
Enticing thus with baited breath
Nice mice to an untimely death.

Gotta love a clever couple of couplets!

We have puns a-plenty in Adventures, by the way!
