Napoleon's Buttons has been removed from the Year 8 booklist and the schedule.  It was one of two options, so Marvels of the Molecule replaces it.

If I may say, I am very sorry it was removed from the book list. There is so much to learn from it. I hope it could be suggested as optional with the notations necessaries for parents awareness.

I am glad that it was on our list.  It was one of my boys favorite books.

Napoleon's Buttons is back on the list. We went through it more closely, scheduled it a bit better, and added footnotes to better provide heads up where that was needed.

It's being suggested as an either/or option with Marvels of the Molecule in Year 8, 8 Lite, and the combo 8/9 year (the one that does years 7-8-9 in Two years).

I posted a bookmark for it in the FB group, but I don't really know how to post it here.

For those who are using this book, I came up with a plan to edit out the objectionable material in the witches chapter. (Some might think this was overkill ...) I am removing page 235-6 with a razor blade, retyping the part of it that I do want my student to read and just tucking my typed page in there. I didn't want to just skip the chapter because it's very interesting, but the stuff on those pages is just too much/too gross. I thought this was a good solution.
