First, Runaway Mummy: A Petrifying Parody by Michael Rex, which makes my girls giggle.
|The book is available here (some hard copies for a penny; yes, I said a penny!!).|
The Amazon Review: "A little mummy transforms into a series of incredible monsters in order to run away and assert his independence. His mother keeps coming to 'get' him, but this little mummy has a mind of his own. Filled with uproarious illustrations, another beloved classic gets a kind-hearted send-up in this utterly monsterized parody. Energetic art and a hilarious text will have kids begging to read this again and again."
Second, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat by Lucille Colandro.
|Also available at Amazon.|
And, last but definitely not least, the opening lines of one of my favorite twisted poems from childhood, "The Spider and the Fly":
"Will you walk into my parlour?" said the Spider to the Fly,Find the whole poem here.
'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there."
Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne'er come down again."
Enjoy your weekend!! ~Alice
