Not that I'm wont to perpetuate stereotypes, but were either of those bookstore debutants blond at all?

Whatever. When it comes to creepily delicious kids' tales, has any come close to surpassing Maurice Sendak's beautifully written and illustrated "Where the Wild Things Are?"

Gives me goosebumps even yet!

In fact, both of them were blondes. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Oh, I have been thrown out of so many bookstores for inserting the comma between "Goodnight" and "Moon."
