Children’s horror

It isn’t often I laugh aloud in a silent house, but I challenge you to read this review without snorking your tea out across the keyboard.



  1. I read this book to each of my kids EVERY NIGHT until about age 3. Is that why they turned out so strange? 🙂

  2. Crikey–I was thinking the same thing myself, Lenore! There was a time when i could have easily recited this book in my sleep.

  3. Oh dear. Now I fear bunnies. And arterial balloons.

  4. Have a feeling this reviewer got a couple of books mixed up…

    He was more likely reading Bunnicula by James Howe, fell asleep at his keyboard and ended up typing the subconscious review he was dreaming just as he, startled into wakefulness, realized his editor’s deadline had passed and unemployment now loomed – perhaps “creativity” would keep him employed. It’s sort of the same as what’s often done with the “news” these days do you think? Creative Absurdity could be the next big thing…

    (Always did wonder where rutabagas came from… that is until I found out about Bunnicula 🙂 )

  5. Jan Collins says:

    HE’s kidding right? I’ll be the first one to admit I love the sound of my own voice…..but this guy…..

  6. Didn’t “snork” my tea (what a wonderfully descriptive word!!) but did start coughing so bad my husband came into the study to see if I was going to live. Dear me. I keep giggling and coughing. Maybe if I just grin ….

  7. Elizabeth Copley says:

    After reading this review and snorking the required beverage of choice on the keyboard, I found myself yelling at the screen; “are ya kiddin me”

  8. I’d be interested to know what this reviewer would say about The Very Hungry Caterpillar…
