Ever wonder where the terms “son of a gun,” “face the music,” and “the whole nine yards” came from? This month, Sergio explores the historical origins of those commonly used phrases and more. Then a struggling inventor yearns for three wishes that will bring him success. And then Sergio recounts his childhood memories as a WWII refugee aboard a ship bound for Mexico, where he first came face to face with a sea serpent; plus, a plethora of Sergio’s pleasing puzzles and pantomimes.
