Bees, Red Admirals, Ants and Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Quantum Physics is probably the longest title we've ever had.  And no, it's not a competition. Andrew Foote has penned this while self isolating and without referring once to Covid 19 by name.

It is, by the way, the Abridged Version, but my title field refused to allow (Abridged) in it. We ran out of room

You ran out of space (speaking of the title).....since space is limited only by the imagination of the brain....that is a curious, almost impossible statement.

I think that, even in our wildest imaginings, our title field could have been considered to be long enough for any author.

How gratifying to have had a smaller imagination than Andrew's

The story was every bit as good as I expected it to be.  The imagination was excellent, and I also enjoyed the reactions of the fathers in the story.

What a delightful little tale! I set Siri on my phone to the Brit male voice and Just let him read away whilst I puttered around doing odds and bits. Totally entertaining and well worth the time Andrew spent writing, and me listening! Bravo!
