Prompt courtesy of Plinky. I picked three, though I didn’t think about it for too long.
- Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
- Where The Wild Things Are
A true classic, soon to be made into a movie, which I cannot wait to see. My dad used to do this quasi-ominous laugh and tell short stories about what kinds of “wild things” might live in the woods along the interstates when we drove in the dark on long trips to and from Grandma & Grandpa’s house.
Another good series, or it was a series of short chapter books when I was a kid. Mrs. Piggle Wiggle had some very creative parenting strategies, most of which would probably border on child abuse these days, yet she wasn’t scary for some reason. Made my parents seem a lot less mean when I had been disciplined for some infraction.
