How could I resist joining in?
Picture books are my life.
I'm a primary school librarian.
My favorites are always books with bite.
Here are my current ten favorites,
books I just can't resist reading, year after year:
Ooooh. Look at that big toy dinosaur. A little bit scary, right?
And what's that he has in his mouth? A gift bag? What's inside?
Well, let's just find out.
This cute and cuddly rabbit checks out a book about wolves from the library.
He's so absorbed in the book that he's oblivious to the
appearance of the very creature he's reading about...until it's too late.
Rotten Island is paradise for all the horrible, terrible monsters
that slither and spit and kick and bite there.
I've always wondered what would happen if junior high teachers read this to their students
on Valentine's Day. The real, cold truth about ooey-gooey romantic love.
I love all the Stupids books. The Stupids are just so...well, stupid.
Why does the Viper keep calling and calling Peggy Pig?
Just showing the cover, with a little boy of seven or eight holding a big rifle,
gets the ooos and aaaas going.
He wants his hat back.
And he's going to get it.
I warn children about The Green Ribbon.
And, of course, it's the first story they turn to.
One tiny step down from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
Not for everyone.
Beware of Beware of the Frog.
What are your favorite edgy children's picture books? What have I missed?
