Sharazad,
I came across your blog while looking for suggestions on music to read to...thought the banned books list was interesting. I'm going to have to read "A Day No Pigs Would Die" again, that was a great one in my childhood, I'll have to check it out again!
Thanks,
Rob

Sharazad,
I loved your sarcastic "blog" about the hungry little catapilliar, and i wanted to put that in my argumentitve essay concerning censorship. Could you please leave that up so that my teacher can find it? Please and thanks!
