Today’s question:
What is the weirdest/strangest/craziest book you’ve read?

My Answer:
This is a hard one.  It took me quite a while to come up with an answer since the majority of books I choose to read, are books that after reading the synopsis, I know I will enjoy.

The book that finally came to mind was a children’s book I reviewed last year.  I’m not sure if it falls under the category of weirdest/strangest/craziest but, in my opinion it was a bit strange.  It has been many years since I have read to a child so am not sure what is really out there in this genre.  It was The Snowman’s Revenge.  I thought the illustrations were scary and couldn’t imagine reading this to a child for the possibility of nightmares. But as I stated, it has been many years of reading to a little one, nor am I surrounded by children, to know what a child likes/dislikes these days.

  2. Too funny!! We loved that book, of course, my youngest was in 3rd & I wouldn’t read it to any of the younger kids 😉

  3. That does sound like a strange book, Cheryl…here’s MY MUSING MONDAYS POST

  4. great idea..get a kid all worked up and very scared..then turn the lights off and say ‘night night’..lol

  5. Snowman’s Revenge does sound pretty freaky for a children’s book!

    Here’s my Musing Mondays post =)

  6. Wow, the story does not look like a nice kids books. It is a strange thing for a snowman to be angry,lol.

  7. The Snowman’s Revenge, especially with scary illustrations doesn’t sound like much of a children’s book. Maybe for older children? Considering my 4 and 5 year old cousins were scared during parts of The Lion King years ago, I’m not so sure The Snowman’s Revenge is a good book for children!

    I hope you enjoy your new books and have a good reading week!

  8. What a freaky book! I hope your mailbox books are much better. 🙂
