Gotta give my son equal time:
He initially wanted to be an eyeball, then a walking skeleton. But his big sister is scared of skeletons, so he (on his own) said he'd like to be a book about walking skeletons. And then at preschool, they did the face painting to make him a saber-tooth tiger. So I guess he's a saber-tooth book.
Down at the bottom of the cover of the book is a review from Stephen King: "I laughed! I cried! I maybe wet my pants!"
The back of the book has a bunch of reviews (and a
mark of the beast bar code!):
“"Loved it. Only thing that would have made it better: Purple crayon."- Harold of Crockett Johnson's Harold and The Purple Crayon
"It's no To Kill a Mockingbird but it does have skeletons!"- Harper Lee
“Way better than anything I’ve written, but how hard is that?”- Anne Rice
“Don’t bother voting. Just read The Walking Skeleton. Really. Just stay home. Please.”- Karl Rove
“An instant and timeless classic.I wish I had used walking skeletons in A Christmas Carol.”- Charles Dickens
