Curious Pages

I love books, have kids, and have a husband who is an elementary school librarian. Really good children's books make me happy.

So you can imagine that I find this blog to be pretty darned hilarious. You can tell what it's about by the subtitle ("recommended inappropriate books for kids"). There are dolls (and people!) without heads, houses (and people!) who catch on fire, bizarre German stories which should never have met with translation, and dubious tales about the health benefits of ice cream. If you have a thing for vintage illustrations, you'll have a field day just glancing around this blog. If you share with Lane Smith (if you have children, you know about him) and Bob Shea (the author of Big Plans, one of our new favorites in The Husband's library) a delight in the snarky and the absurd, you'll take to reading this blog--and likely look up, snickering, from the screen an hour or so later.

Thanks to the funny folks at The Observer's Very Short List for the share.

Petunia is a lovely, goofy book--I found it while thrifting, and I (of course) couldn't resist the colors!

Thanks so much for recommending that oh so funny blog. I just peeked in over there, and now I'm heading back for more laughs. I love unique blogs like that.

Maureen, I'm so glad someone else is enjoying this blog as much as I am!
