James and The Giant Peach – Cloud Men Meringues

‘Once, as they drifted silently past a massive white cloud, they saw on the top of it a group of strange, tall, wispy–looking things that were about twice the height of ordinary men… “Ssshh!” James whispered back. “Don’t let them hear you! They must be Cloud–Men!”‘ I definitely had nightmares about the Cloud-Men from James… Continue reading James and The Giant Peach – Cloud Men Meringues

Happiness is a warm…Donut!

Mmmmmmmm doughnuts! I can’t help myself. This is my third doughnut post. I’m so sorry, but it was rainy and cold outside. I was reading an article in the paper this week about scientific tests to determine what makes us happy. Finding money in your pocket, chocolate, watching funny movies and a warm puppy, naturally… Continue reading Happiness is a warm…Donut!

Oskar and the Ice Pick Ice-Cream

I think I’ve read Oskar and the Ice Pick a hundred times. It’s such a brilliantly written book. There’s no lengthy discussions. No explanations. Just a pure and crazy storyline. Its also quite dark and cold. There are orphans, kidnappings, long and dangerous journeys and dark evil characters. Children are even locked in prison. All… Continue reading Oskar and the Ice Pick Ice-Cream

Kermit Lime Pie

“It’s not easy being green.” Green characters do not have it easy, you are either pure evil (Godzilla, Grinch, Poison Ivy, Wicked Witch) or a hero (Green Hornet, Ninja Turtle, Shrek, Yoda). It’s as if there is something about green blood that makes creatures a little bit crazy. The most well rounded green character of… Continue reading Kermit Lime Pie

Mortimer’s Dangerous Donuts

I’ve never really liked birds. I don’t really like looking at them. I’ve never understood bird watching or why you would keep a bird (although I’ve always been fascinated with the dried cuttlefish budgies have). You can’t really pet them. They’re not fluffy, mainly twitchy and pecky.  My aunt did keep an interesting love-bird who… Continue reading Mortimer’s Dangerous Donuts
