Children's Literacy Round-Up: August 14
A Few Thoughts for August 16th

A New List: Great Antagonists of Children's Literature

A new blogger on the scene, nrkii at Journey Woman, has been inspired in part by the Cool Girls and Cool Boys lists on this site (and the Teachers and Librarians listed on other sites) to start a list of Great Antagonists of Children's Literature. She's broken them into two categories: the true villains and the ones who are perhaps more misguided. I sent her a bunch of suggestions. And if you can think of any bad guys, you should send them over to nrkii, too. Happy reading!
