A Children's Classic - Ideal Bedtime Reading For The Little 'Uns
on 23 February 2017
What more can you say about what is a classic children's book? When my now twenty-one year old eldest son was a nipper, I had to read this to him over and over again, and do suitably monstrous sound effects when the 'Wild Things' do their dance. It works because of its simplicity, and its underlying charm, as well as the originality of its illustrations. It was clearly an influence on 'The Mighty Boosh', too, if you wanna get cross-cultural about it.
