Reconstructive surgery

Sprout loves his books, sometimes a little too hard. Most of the ones we have are board books & thus fairly impervious to his enthusiasm. The ones that can't withstand his curiosity are the flap books. We got one from the library & while he was reading it by himself in his bedroom, he decided to pull off one of the flaps.

So I decided to try some reconstructive surgery on the book. I needed to reinforce the 'gate' & replace a part of it that Sprout may have eaten (we couldn't find it anywhere).

It was fairly successful, I think. Here's a shot of the flap, still 'in traction' while the glue sets.
