I thought it might be fun to take advantage of some of these WordPress writing prompts so my Freaky Fanatics can get to know me a little better. So here we go….
I actually do remember my favorite book from childhood all too well. It was King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub by Audrey and Don Wood.
I always grabbed this beautiful, hardcover book from my elementary school library whenever our class had library day. I bet if it still exists at my old school the library check out card would be filled with my name over and over again. I also remember my friends and classmates never understanding why I loved it so much, which was fine by me because then I knew it would be available to check out. Maybe it was my love of whimsical things, the Renaissance Faire, fantasy films, and fairy tales. Maybe it was because it was like no other book I had ever picked up before. Maybe it was because I have always been drawn to the strange and unusual things most people don’t usually appreciate. All I know is that I could not get enough of this humorous tale no matter how many times I read it and I was absolutely captivated by the illustrations. So much so I would look at the pages over and over again incase I missed something the artist had hidden somewhere. I will forever be grateful for this book as it was a great escape for me as a little girl when life was cruel. I guess that is another reason why I remember how mesmerized I was by it.
