Heeeyyyy, who stole my school gym and put it in OohLaLa Land? You've got all the details just right, even the happy people and kids sitting down to read. This is WON-DER-FUL, and Scholastic should be kissing your feet, girl! Actually, living in OohLaLa Land would be my dream come true! Wouldn't that be just fantastic???
