Ignor and Ignora Ramus live in McGill, a town close to Mount Shamus. The two mischief makers were always up to something: shaving the cat, tripped Willy Wong, and threw rocks at Giant John’s hogs. The people in town gathered together to discuss how to punish Ignor and Ignora; their first conclusion was to spank the unruly pair. A tiny old lady from the top of Mount Shamus suggested “the punishment should fit the crime.” She declared the most effective means of stopping the children was to smother them with a hug and lots of love. The citizens agreed and a plan was formed, but the two children had been hiding behind nearby and heard everything. They stepped out and apologized to the citizens for their behavior. The tiny old lady from Mount Shamus reminded the citizens that the hardest part of asking forgiveness was forgiving yourself.

“Ignor Ramus: A Curious Rhyme” was written by Rob Myers. While children will enjoy the cute story, rhyming prose and whimsical illustrations, they will also respond to the books message about forgiving yourself. But the main message is one for adults; children respond to love. Most people who work with children will attest to the fact that children whom act out are usually the ones with something lacking in their lives; when that need is met, bad behavior is usually modified. “Ignor Ramus: A Curious Rhyme” is a wonderful story parents can read with their children.

Ignor Ramus
A boy named Ignor and his sister Ignora
each with the last name of Ramus.
Lived on a hill,
in the town of McGill,
200 feet in front of Mount Shamus...
This is how our story begins, a curious rhyme
that weaves a tale, so surprising, so uplifting,
that you and your children will read it again
and again.
Beautifully illustrated, the characters will form
an immediate connection with your children and
their ever developing, young imaginations. Don’t be
surprised if your child will want to pull the
characters right off the page and play with them.

“A Curious Rhyme” relates the story of realizing
that sometimes when you think you so surely
know what is going on, that very often you do not.

Sometimes we need someone to “Shame us” and then
to “Blame us” before we truly know what is really

Thank you for considering “Ignor Ramus”
A CURIOUS RHYME for your library.

God Bless,
Rob Myers

This is a precious story for children and adults too ... learning to forgive and giving "hugs". It has the cutest characters illustrated in it too. I bought some as "unique" little gifts for newborns and the parents were so thrilled receiving it - oh, yes, Rob personally autographed it too which made the gift even "more" special.
