three picturebooks and something else

1. The Red Tree by Shaun Tan

this book is lovely,

but will run you 60+ dollars

unless you have friends in high places

like i do

2. Officer Buckle & Gloria by Peggy Rathmann

i read this book in 4th grade,

and again in college, for my first Children’s Lit project,

and then i wrote a 1 page paper on it,

and then i wrote a 5 page paper on it,

and i still love it,

and i got an A+

3. The Beast of Monsieur Racine by Tomi Ungerer

i wrote a one-page paper on this book,

and my professor wrote:

“oh, wait until you hear michael (guest lecturer) riff on Tomi!”

he riffed yesterday,

and apparently,

Tomi Ungerer was trying to sneak disturbing,

questionably… um… titillating images

into his illustrations.

but i didn’t notice at all,

so i think kids probably wouldn’t notice either, hm?

And in case you forgot about them,

here’s some Flight of the Conchords this morning for ya:
