Speaking of oddness in children's books, how about Chris Van Allsberg and any of his books

Jumanji, The "Z" was Zapped, Two Bad Ants, Collection of Harry Burdick, Just a Dream , In the Garden of Abdul Gasazi, The Stranger, The Witch's Broom... to name just a few.

While we are revisiting this topic, did anyone happen to catch the Terri Gross interview on NPR with Maurice Sendak a few months ago? It was during carpool time and the kids were ticked off at me that I was sitting in the driveway to listen to the end of it :LOL . Anyway the link to hear it online is here. An interesting interview, but a very (admittedly) troubled man with a troubled upbringing. Worth a listen for those who love his books - and I'm planning on getting a copy of his new book.

He has designed the set and costumes for the Nutcracker in Seattle at the Pacific Northwest Ballet. It is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was absolutely delighted and when clara and the prince are sailing the seas, a wild thing appears for a quick second. What a trip!

The thing that confuses me is that Little Bear is so sweet and cure, but his other books are a little on the strange side. I wonder if he was into smokin?!



My hubby also wondered if he practiced wicca or another nature- based religeon/philosphy because in Little Bear they had this really cool ceremony honoring winter solstice...

the little bear series were written by else holmlund minarik - not sendak. he just illustrated those books.
he's done a lot of illustrating for other authors. ruth krauss, meindert dejong, janice may udry among them.

Ooooooh, how about The Polar Express? One of the few children's books I've read recently that sends actual shivers down my spine!

Was this in one of the books or on the tv show? I think I've read all the books and don't remember a winter solstice ceremony. Very well could be wrong. If it was the tv show, well, E.H. Minarik has been gone for a while and while -I- love the pagan references (and the meditating frog who says, "ommmmm"), I don't think Minarik would have included that in her stories. Sendak produces the show.

I just love the show. Too bad my baby is getting too old for it.

Someone moved my effing cheese.
