A couple of typos, Dave.

...... after all Google is designed to put you contact with the nearest store that sells a parka or sites that share your political philosophy, not to find a quotations in nineteenth-century newspapers

Might want to fix this too Dave:

“I came along forty years later his friends were still teasing him about it by singing the song the song to him.”

After reading this review, I am considering purchasing Metcalf’s book on “OK.” A friend has a child of about ten years old who is very curious about everything.  Would it be suitable for her at her age?  (Maybe I’ll have to read it first...)

It’s really aimed at adults. There is nothing objectionable in it, but it would be tough slog for a ten year old.
