1. Feedback Friday: Desert Island Picture Book?

Time for a new fun little feature called “Feedback Friday”. I’d love to know…

If you were stranded on a desert island, what ONE picture book would you want to have with you? And why?

Here’s my answer:

Why this book?

Because as a young girl, I loved my stuffed animals. I thought they were real. This is exactly how Emily Brown feels about Stanley. I get Emily Brown, I really do. In the story, Stanley accompanies Emily Brown on all her adventures…into the sea, into space…and a silly, naughty Queen takes notice. The Queen begs for her Bunny-Wunny, but Emily Brown won’t budge. She’s a little firecracker, that one.

This story has adventure, mystery, royalty, and a happy ending for all. I’ve read it a hundred times and it’s never gotten old. If I can’t cuddle with a stuffed animal while I’m stranded, I’ll be fine and dandy cuddling with my copy of this book (especially if it’s paperback and not hardcover).

So tell me, what ONE picture book would you want to wash up on the shore?
