The dream of ten

One hippo on the phone …

I don’t have the skill needed for writing a picture book, but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming. Here are ten picture books I wish I’d written.

Criteria: Can’t include friends or acquaintances and no obvious classics just to sound writerly.

In no particular order …

  1. Hippos Go Berserk by Sandra Boynton (or Barnyard Dance – who could possibly choose?)
  2. The Best Pet of All by David LaRochelle
  3. Elephant and Piggie series by Mo Willems
  4. Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin
  5. Oh, the Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss
  6. The Monster at the End of This Book by Jon Stone
  7. The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch
  8. The Bear Snores On by  Karma Wilson
  9. Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney
  10. Owl Babies by Martin Waddell
