Larry Marder's Beanworld (Book 3): Remember Here When You Are There

Written by: Larry Marder

First line: Mr. Spook and the Chow Sol'jer Army return to the Beanworld by way of the Proverbial Sandy Beach.

Why you should read this book: Wahoolazooma! The Beans are back, and their quest for understanding proceeds apace: Beanish deepens his relationship of Dreamishness, Mr. Spook, the rapidly maturing Pod'l'pool Cuties explore the world and develop their talents, and Heyoka, the upside down and backward Bean who has set forth to learn more about the outside world, returns with greater understanding. There are new inventions, an elusive notworm, and some necessary fighting, singing, and dancing. Marder's afterword explains that that this edition concludes the first quarter of a twelve-book story arc, and seems to anticipate a more hasty delivery of the next installment.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're sure the truth resides in your own back yard.
