Thanksgiving Monkey Butler Cheer*

I sez it’s children’s literature related and I sez the heck with it.  The Thanksgiving connection is, admittedly, a bit of a stretch.  Many many thanks to BoingBoing for the link.

I hope you are all having a delightful Thanksgiving.  I know that with my new baby and newer job I’m awfully thankful for a whole mess of things.

Now if you’d like another link, enjoy the antics happening under the hashtag #LiteraryTurducken.  As the publisher Doubleday describes it, “The #LiteraryTurducken combines not one, not two, but three classic works into one, in the spirit of the turkey+duck+chicken creole classic.”  Favorites that I spotted briefly while looking at it included “The Lion, The Witch, and the War & Peace Like a River”, “Anne of Green Eggs & Ham on Rye”, and naturally, “Into Where the Wild Things Fall Apart.”  Fun for all.  Big thanks to T.S. Ferguson for the link!

*Is anyone else hearing Bart’s line after he says, “It’ll be like Swiss Family Robinson but with swearing!”?

  1. I am definitely hearing Bart Simpson say that, while Lisa holds up the charter for the Model U.N.
