The Art of the Catapult: Build Greek Ballistae, Roman Onagers, English Trebuchets, and More Ancient Artillery by William GurstelleWhether playing at defending their own castle or simply chucking pumpkins over a fence, wannabe marauders and tinkerers will become fast acquainted with Ludgar, the War Wolf, Ill Neighbor, Cabulus, and the Wild Donkey—ancient artillery devices known commonly as catapults. Building these simple yet sophisticated machines introduces fundamentals of math and physics using levers, force, torsion, tension, and traction. Instructions and diagrams illustrate how to build seven authentic working model catapults, including an early Greek ballista, a Roman onager, and the apex of catapult technology, the English trebuchet. Additional projects include learning how to lash and make rope and how to construct and use a hand sling and a staff sling. The colorful history of siege warfare is explored through the stories of Alexander the Great and his battle of Tyre; Saladin, Richard the Lionheart, and the Third Crusade; pirate-turned-soldier John Crabbe and his ship-mounted catapults; and Edward I of England and his battle against the Scots at Stirling Castle.

One of them was the Tikki Tikki Tembo book. I had told my mother-in-law that I was starting to collect some of the childhood books that I had as a kid to be able to read to my kids. Anyhow, so I remember having a record of Tikki tikki tembo when I was little, so I skimmed through the book. This book calls him Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo. And they called him Long-name-no-can-say in my record. Does anyone have memories of this as a kid?
Tikki Tikki Tembo was created in I dont know but it is such a good book.

A Song About Hawaii
Listen to the story. Once there lived a family in ancient China that had two sons. The elder son, who was to inherit the family fortune, was given a very-long and very-impressive name, as befitted an elder son. The second son, who would have to make his own way in the world and was therefore not so important, though no less beloved, was named Ping. The two brothers were good friends, and loved to play games with one another. One day, as they were playing tag, little Ping slipped on some wet grass and fell into the river. Neither of the brothers knew how to swim.
It is a sort of origin myth about why Chinese names are so short today. The book is controversial because it appears to retell a Japanese story and because it does not portray Chinese culture accurately. Chang falls in the well and his older brother runs to their mother and tells her Chang has fallen down the well. Their mother tells him to get the Old Man with the Ladder. He goes and tells the Old Man.
