Could do with some llamas, there has never been a book that hasn’t needed a llama. The last harry potter, so much better if a llama had turned up for a chat.

a classic kids book.

hehe oh how to get an Author to defend his works with a one word critique.

To provoke further (hehe again, god I’m a shitstirrer), the wally2 bird shouldn’t have to resort to cosmetic surgery for peer approval.

In fact…

The current book I’m working on is about the Wally Wally Bird.

Now the Wally Wally bird has a big beak, a big head, a big neck, a big body, big wings, but small legs.

Thus he looks silly and is ridiculed by the other animals.

One day he gets stuck in the mud and the other animals come to his rescue by trying to drag him out. however, his legs get stuck and the more they drag the more his legs stretch.

finally he is freed and his legs, now stretched, match his body.

And there is much rejoicing.

The end.

I guess you could in this case state that he the Wally Wally Bird is be discriminated against because he looks funny.

BTW, this story is copyrighted.

Cheers

It has been pointed out to me, although I didn’t even think of it until it was pointed out.

However, it is just a simple little story. If the politically correct nazis want to have a go at the story then I’m sure it could be seen that way.

If it is taken for what it is then it’s just a simple story with a nice ending in the fashion of Kipling’s Just So stories albeit, very much simpler.

Nothing more, nothing less πŸ™‚

I ask you, was May Gibbs racist when whe labelled Banksia Men as evil? I mean, surely that stereotyping?

Was Kenneth Williams being racist by stereotyping the weasels in Wind in the Willows as nasty, stealing, lying characters?

Let the public decide.

i think it’s kinda cool.. really appeals to my IQ level.

Ntp 10:11 am 23 Jul 07

seemed to have racial under tones to me Thump.

Thumper 9:44 am 23 Jul 07

Nope, it’s just a simple little repetitive story about a nonsensical animal.

Mr Evil 9:14 am 23 Jul 07

Are there any gender-fluid characters or same-sex couples in the book???? πŸ™‚

Thumper 8:56 am 23 Jul 07

Hardly….

Maelinar 8:44 am 23 Jul 07

and racist…

Thumper 8:25 am 23 Jul 07

schmerica,

I think it’s for about 7 and below. It’s very simple and repetitive.

Danman 5:51 pm 22 Jul 07

Its a business plan for a government department.

What is the story about? What age group is it designed for?
