Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymus Bosch
May 22nd, 2010 by Noodlenuts


A woman once worked for Hieronymus Bosch—

she handled his cooking, his cleaning, his wash.

She baked and she swept

while his paintings, she feared,

grew increasingly wild and decidedly weird.

In Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymus Bosch we are presented with the disconcerting notion of what life would have been like in the household of this painter of notoriously peculiar works of art, if the bizarre creatures in his paintings were quite real—and living in his home—rather than just figments of his slightly skewed imagination.  Read the rest of this entry »

What Elephant?
May 20th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

“Elephants don’t watch TV, and they certainly don’t eat chocolate chip cookies.”

I’m not a fan of preachy books, or those that revolve around teaching kids a lesson, but I do have a soft spot for a great story that encourages  the sort of character traits that reinforce independent thinking, creativity, and imagination.  What Elephant? is one of those stories.

Dali and the Path of Dreams
May 19th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Once upon a time there was a little boy whose name was Salvador, though everyone called him Salvi.

Dali and the Path of Dreams, much like James Warhola’s Uncle Andy’s, is remarkable in its ability to convey complex ideas about an artist and his art to very young children.  Read the rest of this entry »

Inventor McGregor
May 19th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Mend-It McGregor, everyone called him, because he could mend most anything that needed mending, they said, from fishing rods and fairy wands to top hats and rubber ducks.

Inventor Hector McGregor leads the sort of life we can all envy.  He loves his work, has a wonderful family and a happy home, and spends his time making life easier and happier for others with his fixing skills and ingenious inventions.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Pink Refrigerator
May 19th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

“Try to do as little as possible.”

This was Dodsworth’s motto.

This is a fabulous story about inspiration, curiosity, and trying new things.

It is the story of Dodsworth, a lazy mole who gets by in life doing as little as possible. Dodsworth is not necessarily unhappy, but isn’t particularly happy either.  He just sort of . . . is. Read the rest of this entry »

Micawber
May 16th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

. . . if some July you should chance to

pass by

A viridian Central Park dale,

Look around for a squirrel

with a gleam in his eye

And some paint on the tip of his tail.

John Lithgow may be most familiar to adults as a comedian and television and movie actor, but as far as I’m concerned, his greatest talent lies in his amazing stories for children, Micawber being an excellent example.  Read the rest of this entry »

Carnival of the Animals
May 16th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Oliver Pendleton Percy the Third

Was a mischievous imp of a lad.

The tricks that he played on

Professor McByrd

Nearly drove the old schoolmaster mad.

As Carnival of the Animals opens, little Oliver Pendleton Percy the Third is creeping away from a class outing to New York City’s Natural History Museum, only to fall asleep behind one of the exhibits.  Read the rest of this entry »
