The Great Wednesday Compare #5- Margaret Wise Brown VERSUS Maurice Sendak

The final winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Louisa May Alcott Vs Margaret Wise Brown), with a final score of 5-2, was Margaret Wise Brown!

About frickin' time we same good-bye to Alcott. No offense to all the Little Women fans out there, because I haven't read it. But the Winona Rider movie? BOR-ING! And the Alcott book I did read, A Long Fatal Love Chase, was absolutely awful. I'm not sorry to see her go this week.

Let's see how Brown does next week.

Remember, vote simply by adding your comment below, base it on whatever merit you choose, voting does not end until Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. (April 6, 2010), and if you want your book to get more votes, feel free to promote them here or on your blog!

Who is better?

I'm sticking with Brown.

Now that Alcott is gone, I'll switch my allegiance to Brown.

My initial instinct was to stick with Brown, as Where the Wild Things Are has never been a book our family has treasured. However, I knew he did more than that, so I wikied him. Little Bear!

And then I saw it, the info that solidifies my vote for Sendak, aside from the huge list of illustrations he has done that are fabulous - Seven Little Monsters!
Love the book, love the TV series. And that's all Sendak.

Sendak for the win.

I've had a really hard time deciding. So, because Goodnight Moon is still my daughter's favourite book, I'm going with Margaret Wise Brown.

I've never read Wise Brown, so am going with Sendak, although I have just barely read him.

Sendak for Wild things and Little Bear!

Brown all the way! WTWTA was never a big favourite for my kids or me.

This is tough, but I'm still sticking with Margaret Wise Brown - I use her books far more frequently in storytimes and appreciate her versatility.

I'm going with "Brownie" as her friends called her.
