Children's Books

Post by FengharTheNord »

Yeeaaaah its gonna get hot up in dis piece.

Give to me your suggestions for best Children's book ever, or ones that are just pretty good too.

I nominate Little Rabbit Foo Foo, Where the Wild Things Are(OMYGODTHEREISAMOVIECOMINGOUTWITHFORRESTWHITTAKEROMGOMGOMGOGMOG), and Love You Forever- the saddest children's book in the entire world ever. Possibly the saddest thing ever.

If you haven't read it you must go find it. Its by Robert Munsch.

Oh, I also nominate all the goosebumps books, but specifically the choose-your-own-adventure ones.

This book is too sad.
It will break. Your. Heart.

Robert Munsch's whole life is a series of horrific tragedies. He's got OCD and manic depression, and his wife gave birth to two stillborn children. And I just read that last year he suffered a stroke and has stopped writing temporarily (but thankfully still performs).

I know, man, that's why I'm such an amazing writer. 'Cause it's an expression of my feelings, ya know, and the great, terrible darkness that I harbour in my soul.

Dear Christ, that is the first book that made me cry as a child. Seriously, it is far too sad to be allowed in the hands of anyone but properly licensed individuals.

It made pretty much everyone in my third grade classroom cry, which is crazy because children don't have emotions except for fear and scream.

Umm, i remember that book and it did not do anything for me. Bridge to taribithia(sp?) made me shed a tear or two, but not where the Wild Things Are. I dunno, perhaps my life at teh time was far more terrible at that time or something.. that or I am a very bad person

We're not talking about Where the Wild Things are, but rather Love You Forever. So sad.

The secret tear magic is unlocked when the book is read in the vicinity of children.

So is immortality, but you have to do something different for that*.

Though Robert Munsch occupies a special place in my heart I have to say my favourite children's writer is Dr. Suess. I also love his art.

Never heard of that sob story you guys are talking about. I was reading things like Swiss Family Robinson and 20,000 leagues under the sea in first grade (It may sound braggy but I'm just trying to give you some background info).

But, I did really like Eric Carle in Kindergarten.

Yeah, I can imagine it would make me cry if I read it to one of my kids. I never cared for it too much as a kid, though.

I saw a very interesting interview with Munsch on The Hour. I think he said something kind of profane. I don't remember. It was just funny. Dropped a "shit" or something, which thanks to the timeslot and the fact that it is the CBC, it wasn't edited. It was kind of nice to just here him as a normal person, that people who write childrens books don't have to be 100% kid safe and exuding happiness all the time. He's a real person!
