A Thing Wherein I Infrequently Write Some Stuff

The Very Desperate Blogger

We haven’t been buying Baby Dog a lot of new books lately, but I impulse shopped on Amazon the other day and today presented her with The Very Lonely Firefly. This is an addition to her large and much-loved library of Eric Carle books: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Busy Spider, and, though she hasn’t become familiar with it yet and won’t until she’s a bit older, The Very Grouchy Ladybug.*

Mama Dog and I were moved to consider Rejected Titles for Eric Carle books. Here are some I came up with:

The Very Eager Tapeworm
The Very Ambivalent Hermaphrodite
The Very Unlucky Turkey (a Thanksgiving book)
The Very Smelly Roadkill
The Very Horny Toad
The Very Annoying Telemarketer

Try it yourself! It’s fun!
*She also has Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too?, but it doesn’t fit with this post.
