  1. But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go - we’ll eat you up - we love you so!”

    This is sad. At least he lived long enough to see his storybook be made into a big, pretty movie., I guess.

    Lemme think, I loved:
    Peef, The Christmas Bear (one of my favorites as a child)
    The Secret Garden (my mother read it to me when I was very young, chapter at a time, and then I myself read when I was old enough)
    Velveteen Rabbit
    Love You Forever

    I'm sure there are more but those are the ones that come to mind.
  4. Peter Rabbit
    Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
    When I Was Young in the Mountains
    My Great Aunt Arizona
    The Keeping Quilt

    he slit open the throat of this poor girl with a rusty spoon and then started to carve her into little bits with his chainsaw just so he could have small enough pieces that it would cook well enough.
