The Great Wednesday Compare #5- Margaret Wise Brown VERSUS Cervantes

The final winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Margaret Wise Brown Vs Maurice Sendak), with a final score of 6-3, was Margaret Wise Brown!

I don't have strong feelings one way or the other about last week's result. I've never been a big fan of Sendak's writing. It took last year's movie adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are to make me appreciate that story. Now if it had been a contest between Sendak and Clement Hurd, the illustrator behind Brown's Good Night Moon and The Runaway Bunny, I would have picked Sendak in a heartbeat.

I hope next week's match-up throws you all for a loop. 6 extra points if you can connect them within 6 degrees of separation.

Who is better?

I'll stick with Margaret Wise Brown this week. Not even going to try the 6-Degrees-of-Separation game!

Going with Cervantes on this one! I like tilting at windmills.

Margaret Wise Brown for me! Maybe she read Don Quixote?

Going with Margaret, because I'm still bitter over Don Quixote.
