Michael Rosman's show combines slapstick comedy and daring feats. For example, he balances a blender on his head and catapults bananas into it. Also, he juggles flaming torches and a running chainsaw. And sometimes he does it while riding a 9-foot-tall unicycle. The stunts are all part of his Amazing Feats of Comedy act that he started performing more than 15 years ago. After making a name for himself on the variety show circuit, Rosman is ready to tackle a new feat - a two-person show called Rosman and Rose.

Woods,Church Lane Elementary"My favorite book is 'The Berenstain Bears and the Science-Fi Pizza' by Stan and Jan Berenstain. I like this book because father bear is in a spinning pizza contest.

As the dog days of summer approach and the younger members of the family grow restless, experienced parents always keep a little something in reserve. Like a good book. The only drawback is figuring which books will pacify your brood. To get help, we turned to the pros. The Sun asked five local children's librarians for their choices for kids as young as infants and as old as middle-schoolers. The volunteers faced one additional challenge. They had to come up with books that fit a summer theme - from finding an engrossing way to pass the time outdoors to offering an adventure in outer space.

"I liked reading 'Amelia Bedelia' by Peggy Parish. First, I liked the action. I liked when she dressed the chicken up. Then she cut the towels up into holes. Second, I liked the ending. I liked when Mrs. Roger was very, very angry. She was getting ready to tell her that she was fired but Mr. Roger put some pie in her mouth and she wasn't angry anymore."- De'von RichardsWellwood International Elementary" 'Dog Breath!: The Horrible Terrible Trouble with Hally Tosis' by Dav Pilkey is my favorite book.
