Debatables: The Better Christmas Special

It’s time once again to engineer some conflict with my pal, Cricket Muse!

That can only mean one thing: It’s a new Debatables, where Cricket and I expend way too much effort arguing minor matters in children’s literature.

This months topic:

The Best Christmas TV Special Based on a Children’s Book

In making our choices we had to adhere to two rules:

  1. The book had to be published before the special was produced.
  2. We couldn’t choose How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

I selected A Wish For Wings That Work

For some mysterious reason Cricket couldn’t embed the WFWTW video on her blog so I’m posting it here. Give it a watch! It’s a delight!

And Cricket chose Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, which started out as a coloring book before it became a song and a Rankin-Bass stop motion cartoon. So Cricket’s section technically applies.

A coloring book? Really, Cricket? Way to uphold the letter—if not the spirit—of the Debatables rules. Very Christmas-y, that.

I’m turning off the comments on this post because the arguments are taking place on Cricket’s blog. So head on over, read our arguments, and leave an opinionated comment!

I know I’m the underdog here, so do give Opus a watch before passing judgement.

Happy Holidays All!

Debatables: The Most Villainous Villain!

It’s time once again for Debatables, where my bloggy pal, Cricket Muse, and I argue with waaaay too much passion about esoteric and/or insignificant literary matters!

This month we answer the age-old question: Who is the scariest villain in children’s literature?

Cricket says Cruella De Vil.

I on the other hand am going with a dark horse candidate. This guy:

He’s a Heath Ledger Joker-like agent of chaos. AND he makes me sneeze. 

Head on over to Cricket’s blog to read our arguments and express your boisterous opinion!

 

Doodles 'n' Drawings, On Blogging

The Winning Doodle REVEALED!

The timing of my Win A Doodle Contest could not have been better.

For the past week, I haven’t been able to write well. I blame Daylight Savings Time; ever since we sprang forward, I’ve been spending my days half asleep.

Fortunately, I can doodle while half asleep. So I was able to honor the wishes of Jenion, the Win a Doodle Contest’s Big Winner.

Jenion, an avid cyclist, asked for something bicycle-related. Well, my friend, your wish is my command:

Cyclist

Be sure to check your mail, as I will be sending you the original drawing soon!

Take care, everyone!
