Curious Pages Blog

If you're a fan of the obsurd, check out http://curiouspages.blogspot.com/
It approaches (mostly) the illustrations of not so innocuous children's books from an adult sense of humor.


The nerd in me most enjoys Grammar Can Be Fun by Monro Leaf featuring the so lazy he is nearer death than most Ain't who graces the cover but unfortunately doesn't survive beyond the first page.  I'm not sure what's funnier, Leaf's prose or the blogger's commentary.

This book and others feature detailed illustration that make the experience especially enjoyable.  It's akin to watching a movie on mute and creating your own dialogue except without the embarrassment if someone walks in on you doing it alone.

Check it out and share your favorite or now favorite children's book.
