posted by: Garry | November 25, 2015, 04:10 pm   

In July the U.S Supreme Court decided that it would take up the Friedrichs vs. California Teachers Association case.

AAE became a Friend of the Court this past March.

The Cat, The Fish, and The Waiter is a charming story penned by teenaged author Marianna Bergues. The whimsical tale would be a hit with elementary school children even if the book was constructed in the ordinary manner…but it isn’t!

The story revolves around French waiter Peter who attempts to manage a busy day at Le Petit Café, all the while being besieged by various requests. By an odd coincidence, two vacationing friends ask him to pet-sit a fish and a cat. Additionally, Peter’s new mattress is delivered on the same day.
