Update Friday: The Crows of Pearblossom

Heading back to January of '08 for today's Update Friday, the day where I brush off an old post and add lots of new scans and sass. Still holding firm as one of the most bizarre children's books of all time, meet The Crows of Pearblossom, Aldous Huxley's only children's book, published posthumously with pictures by Barbara Cooney. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

We must love the bizarre! I found this in a thrift store and my children and I have read it over and over again. And that picture of Mama crow hanging the diapers on the dead snake, okay — that is bizarre. But satisfying somehow...
