Whose idea was it to start beating it in the first place?

I was obsessed with unicorns when I was little. I watched The Last Unicorn over and over and over. (Even though it was a little scary).

My daughter is three and we just started her first chapter book yesterday- Charlotte's Web. I love it- she actually sat through two whole chapters!

Hooray for the chapter book!! No doubt she'll grow up to be a great writer like her mama...or at least a great reader!

And oh...the Last Unicorn...I have the theme song running through my head now. Awesome.

Ha, what is it about unicorns? I loved them too. I mean, it's just a freaking horse with a horn. But somehow it's so. much. cooler.

My favorite books growing up? The Chronicles of Narnia. Yes, there were unicorns there too.

True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle... best ever!!! While I'm not a ship captain, I do tend to find jobs wherein I'm the only girl surrounded by a bunch of men and boys, so I think it did someone inspire my career choice. And, I read it every year also! :)

NICE. Narnia and Charlotte! I surround myself with people that have fabulous taste in books. Next to unicorns, one of my favorite things to read is mutinous ship stories. If I could only combine the two...

Yay for Birth of the Firebringer! Loved that one. I was obsessed with Call of the Wild by Jack London. I won Josh's NCAA March Madness brackets at work one year because I picked UConn to win because I said I liked the Yukon because of the book. UConn=Yukon. Get it. Yeah I know it was a bit of a stretch but I won $60 non the less.

My favorite book was "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." Because I really, really, liked food. Still do.
I refused to see the movie as I did not want my favorite book to be ruined.
Also, has there been any successful adaption of a children's book into a movie?
Examples:
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
creepy

Horton Hears a Who
Boring

Those are the only two I can think of. And they both involve Jim Carrey. Which I think means something. Jim Carrey is supposed to be funny. I think he is very annoying.

I fell head over heels for two books: Dealing with Dragons and Ella Enchanted. They set the course for my fantasy fairy tales writing.
