I am totally conflicted about Runaway Bunny. It always seemed VERY creepy to me before I had a kid, but now I "get it." At the same time it still eeghs me out a little. DD is completely fascinated by it for some reason--I think it appeals to her two-ness.
Speaking of lines like "blow me," we have had a hard time reading our beautifully illustrated copy of "The Owl and the Pussycat" with a straight face. "Oh lovely pussy....oh pussy, my love....what a beautiful pussy you are, you are!"
I don't really care for the biologically inaccurate "Time to Sleep" either. Also, although I love the art, "Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me"'s story is weirdly confusing at the end.
One that makes me crazy is called "Farmer Duck" or something like that. It's about a farmer who's lazy and makes the duck do all the work feeding and herding the other animals. Then the other animals feel sorry for the duck and band together to overthrow the farmer. Okay, so I appreciate the socialist element, but dude, if all you animals have human agency and consciousness, why did the duck have to herd you and plow the fields and all that in the first place?
: Makes no freaking sense.
