wednes in response to katie_can_draw's post about children's books:

"Myself, I like the old school Grimm tales where children are being torn apart by wolves or cut up for stew. In the US of A, kids aren't really exposed to extreme peril in fairy tales like they used to be. That kid who thinks he had such "terrible horrible, no good very bad day" is really kind of a whiny wuss. "Oh no...not plain white shoes?!?" Whatever punk, you should be glad your grandmother wasn't eaten by yet another wolf. So I guess my main concern with contemporary children's stories is the lack of ravenous wolves."
