Topic: Children’s literature
A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh andThe House at Pooh Corner have been staples of children’s literature (and of Disney’s television and movies) for generations. There’s something about a bumbling, cuddly little teddy bear coming alive and having all sorts of madcap adventures with his neighboring toys and their human friend that’s always appealing, and subsequently, it would seem difficult to improve on the idea. But allow me to introduce you to artist James Hance’s brilliant creation: Wookie the Chew. More
Way back when I was a wee little nerd, I remember reading Goodnight Moon with a frequency that bordered on obsessive. I’m not entirely sure what it was about the story that I liked so much; maybe it was the repetition, or the anthropomorphic bunny, or the trippy way in which the images in the room changed from page to page. In any event, had Julia Yu”s Frank Herbert-inspired Goodnight Dune existed in the mid-80′s, I have no doubt that it would have usurped the original’s honored place on my bookshelf in an instant. I mean, why bother saying goodnight to a red balloon and a cow jumping over the moon when you can say goodnight to a red baron and a Shai-Hulud bursting out of a dune instead?
