Dude, what's with all the picture-book hateration lately?
Clearly copying off Laurel Snyder, the American Scene recently ran a column titled, "Worst. Children's Books. Ever." It included some of our favorite love-to-hates (hey, Love You Forever! Howdy, The Giving Tree!), but I was surprised by the depth of vitriol reserved for The Polar Express. Wow. Just . . . wow.
And don't miss the comments. I know I say that all the time, but seriously, don't. Heck, stop on by the Guardian snippet that pointed me there and have a look at those comments.
