If you’re going to go anywhere in Scappoose, Oregon for a breakfast, lunch or dinner meal let me suggest you go back in time and go to a wonderful restaurant called Ichabod’s.

Ichabod’s is a old school restaurant that will satisfy your mood for food. They feature everything from butter on toast to your choice of steak. They also have sandwiches and Mexican food and all the those sides your love so much: fries, onion rings and also tater tots.

When you walk through the door of this downhome diner, you will smell all the wonderful meals. You will feel warm from all of the people and the heat coming from the food. The people managing the restaurant will find you a seat. If you enter feeling sad, you will will exit happy.

When my grandma, grandpa and I went to this restaurant, I left happy as a pig and stuffed as a turkey. My grandma had her choice of steak, and my grandpa just had jelly toast and eggs. I had a hamburger for breakfast and it was huge. I loved the burger; it was fantastic.

If you go to any restaurant in Scappoose, definitely try Ichabod’s.

Bone by Jeff Smith is a funny and interesting comic book.

Bone is funny because the characters have a hilarious personalities. For example, Phoney Bone has stupid ideas and most of the time is angry. That doesn’t sound funny, but it is.  He got angry in “Book 2” because Smiley Bone made the worst cow suit. Smiley is funny too.  He’s pretty stupid and ruins all the plans, for example the plans to rebuild the farm house in “Bones 2.” Although Bones is entertaining, it also is interesting.

Bone is interesting for many reasons. They have villages that have never heard of money, and also there are dragons and also monsters called rat creatures. The dragon is the protector of the Bone cousins, and the rat creatures are ugly monsters that live in the woods and work for a king rat creature called Kingdok. The rat creatures are chasing down the Bone cousins and have not succeeded in capturing them because of the dragon. This is just one of the many reasons the plot of this book is riveting.
