the.book.chat. {Children's books}

Today's book chat topic from Sweet Green Tangerine is Children's Books. 


One of my all-time favorite children's books is The Last of the Really Great Wangdoodles.

The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles

"The Whangdoodle was once the wisest, the kindest, and the most extraordinary creature in the world."

I don't know how to give a brief description without giving too much away. It's such a fantastical story about the power of imagination and I've never met anyone else who has heard of it which is really a shame. I've given copies as gifts and every kid (plus their parents) has loved it.  I can only recommend reading it for yourself because it really is wonderful!


  1. I have never heard of this, I need to check it out!

  2. i haven't heard of this but it sounds funny!!

  3. Reminds me a little of "The Whingdingdilly" by Bill Peet, though more or less just the title. Still, sounds very funny.

  4. Thanks for sharing, I'll have to find a copy and give it to my boys. :) Thanks for linking up with us!

  5. Thanks for linking up!
    Also thanks for the comment on my blog. I would've replied directly but your email address isn't attached to your comment. right now you're a "no reply blogger". If you do a google search with how to change that, it'll make it so people can reply to comments you leave on other blogs!

    Hope you're having a great weekend!
