Empty adaptations of children’s classics

In an article that could have been published during Salon‘s glory days, Hilary Flower indicts empty, Disney-esque adaptations of classic children’s books like The Wind in the Willows. Maybe it’s just the wine, but I had to stop reading halfway through. It was too depressing.

Meanwhile, some feminists see Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat as an effort to overcome womb envy. Either they were a little too pressed for time on the thesis or I prescribe a bottle of wine. Mad Dog 20/20 works faster. (Book links via Bookninja.)
