I have always loved this poem. I remember sharing it with my story telling class in grad school. I love C. Vess's art work, and I love the little video thing Neil posted in his blog.(Sorry I just had to share)

Life is too short to read a bad book.

I've only heard it, from that clip of Neil reading it. It is wonderful.

yeah I loved it too. It's just perfect. And so sweet. I got a quote from there on my siggy right now
There seems to be an aspect of every fairytale in that book.

Then go home.
Or make a home.
Or rest.

It's very cute, I just got a copy for christmas for *me* from my mam, and bought a copy for christmas *from* me to one of my nieces.

I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.

the parrot... ...gets tiresome.
the parrot... ...i ate him.

Absolutely adore the story. Wife and I packed up our belongings in storage in June and hit the road for an extended tour of the southwest (U.S.). Brought the illustrated book with us and read it when we began the adventure and periodically throughout to remind ourselves just what it was we had undertaken. We love reading "children's" books for all ages together. Jon J. Muth also one of our favorite creators...
