Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein LOTS of picture books, especially (repeatedly): The Very Hungry Caterpiller by Eric Carle, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, Beetle Bop by Denise Fleming, and Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems
In sadder children's literature news this morning, I have just learned that Dick King-Smith died last week at the age of 88. He is probably best known here for having written The Sheep Pig, which was later published in America as Babe: The Gallant Pig and was made into the hit film Babe. In all, he wrote over one hundred books which have been translated into twelve languages and continue to delight children (and adults) the world over.
