There is a shelving war going on right now in juvie books over how to properly shelve the Chronicles of Narnia. I'm not really sure who's involved, but every time I shelve the books they're in a different order. Publication order, chronological order, ordered by the number on the spine, alphabetically (which is how they're MEANT to be shelved, thank you very much)... it boggles the mind.
Also, am I the only one who would be slightly uneasy about reading a children's book by Colin Meloy?
Also also, for your consideration, I submit The Tadpole's Promise for the title of Most Horrifying Children's Book In The World. Link leads to a video reading of the book.
