walkingbomb:

a fantasy book where:

  • the necromancer isn’t at all evil, keeps their reanimated cat as a companion
  • the ‘dark lord’ is woman who wears a floor length floral cloak and pink kitten heels
  • the orcs are highly intelligent and frequently engage in orc chess and deep philosophical debates
  • the elvish archer is the clumsiest, most inaccurate little shit ever
  • the bard writes deep emo poetry, constantly quoting sonnets by the most talented musicians of the era-  ‘fall out bard’ and ‘panic at the inn’
  • the mage only knows 3 spells- and they all involve cutlery
  • the intellectual character that finds the powerful relic/enchanted item/mysterious glowy thing is 120% done with all of it ‘for GODS sake, that is the SEVENTH DARK ORB THIS YEAR are yOU KIDDING’
  • the healer character is also the most ripped, usually ends up treating their own wounds more than anyone elses
  • the ‘deep broody’ character is actually mute the whole time but no one realises and thinks it’s just part of his moody persona until he has to fucking spell it out for them (literally), spends the whole story making exasperated faces and gestures
  • the dragon that’s hunting them down for the whole story is actually just trying to give back the shoe that one of them lost while running away, and is actually very conversational ‘bro, you’ve got this all wrong– look, you dropped this bro, haha i’m always forgetting stuff too don’t worry’

A Minimalist, Maximally Imaginative Geometric Allegory for the Essence of Friendship and Creativity - Wednesday by Anne Bertier

What a circle and a square can teach us about empathy, collaboration, and the origin of great ideas.

One of the cutest abstract minimalist storybook I've ever seen & I wanna get a copy of it bc sheer cuteness

What is your favorite children's story?

There's a lot, cuz I used to read a lot when I was a kid. Here are just some of them:
  • Tales from the Carrot Patch (Kisah Dari Taman Wortel) © Neil Connely & Carolyn Bracken
  • those dolphin stories © Colleen Payne
  • that story with the bunny wanting to buy both red & blue pairs of shoes and confused herself, and found out that her crocodile friend is also in the same boat as she is.
  • Snuggle The Bunny (Manjakan Anak Kelinci)
  • old storybooks from Mizan (especially about Mio and his friends in it). I'm not familiar with the new ones.
  • The 365 stories series (365 fairies, 365 mice, 365 kitten capers, 365 elephants, etc)
  • some Enid Blyton books (I forgot what the titles were)
  • some Roald Dahl books (like Fantastic Mr Fox, BFG, James and the Giant Peach, etc)
  • Ruby the Copycat © Peggy Rathmann

archiemcphee:

What if Dr. Seuss told stories about Jedi, Wookiees, and droids instead of hat-wearing cats, Wockets, and fish? Former Disney animator and character artist Jason Peltz has skillfully combined two of our favourite things, Star Wars and the work of Dr. Seuss, with an awesome, ongoing series of cover illustrations. There’s even a little love for Mister Ed included as well.

These three pieces were available as limited edition prints via Steal This Art. Keep an eye on the site for the opportunity to purchase future installments.

Catundra by Stephen Cosgroves, narratd by Mark Pearson.

As a kid I loved this story (cuz it's probably the only Serendipity book I've ever had) and loved how the mole changed Catundra by starting small, and that she's willing to listen to him and go on a diet instead of eating more whenever she gets depressed. So if anyone ever feels fat and teased, just remember this story.

Samuel L. Jackson giving a dramatic reading of a beloved children’s book, “go the fuck to sleep”.
I swear I did NOT know this song is a remix of this narrative. I like both either way though.

Omg, this cover... I remember all my storybooks have this as their back covers! Gah.. but they're all translated into Indonesian though.
