This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.
- In 1944 a children’s book club sent a volume about penguins to a 10-year-old girl, enclosing a card seeking her opinion.
She wrote, “This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”
American diplomat Hugh Gibson called it the finest piece of literary criticism he had ever read. (via ceedling)

Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.

Oh my Goooooooood.
Look at my brother’s homework. Look at it. It says:
Hope you had a good fall. Aren’t you glad I survived? I’ll be seeing you very soon. I am going to have a few surprises for you.
The most perfect part is that “Hope you had a good fall” is both exactly the sort of lame pun a little kid would like, and also exactly the sort of thing Moriarty would say.
Sheep-herding bunny. Too cute.
