If imitation is truly the sincerest form of flattery, then Vettriano should be quite pleased, as should dozens of other artists -- even amateurs like Sir Winston Churchill -- because Henty has made a career out of selling fakes of their works.
Teachers warn parents to keep up some reading, math, and science during the summer, so kids are fresh to learn in September. August is the month to be thinking about that. But how do you do this without kids feeling their summer's being interrupted by boring school stuff?
