And they say kids these days are exposed to too much violence in their entertainment... what the hell is going on here?
Gotta love the old books for being just as scary as modern stuff. I've been reading a lot of old nursery rhymes of late and some are particularly gruesome. Like Rose Red, where they kill the dwarf to steal back the treasure!
a cold iron, thats soothing. I started reading an old copy of Grims tales illustrated by Maurice Sendak to some wee uns and had to stop myself at the point in a story when the heroine goes into the banned room to find .Every one else who'd ever looked in there carved up and put in baskets. she prevails but i thought why spend 15 minutes reading and 45 talking about it at bed time.
Ha!So gruesom!I did think a cold iron might be soothing... but what was the injury? I didn't read the book to find out... but I thought it was an interesting part to illustrate...!
Awesome. I've read a few of the Grims in their original form and man, are they ever so slightly twisted. Enough to send a few of the modern day wrapped in cotton wool lot straight to the therapists. Speaking of a warped childhood, I've started to watch the old Warner Brothers cartoons again. Ahhh, bliss...
My favourites are the crows. I love those guys!Oh! And the singing cricket... that was in the workmans lunchbox... you know! The cricket!
