I’m sure you have an opinion. What is the most ominous wintry scene in children’s literature? CricketMuse argues that Edmund’s encounter with the White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia takes the prize,
—while I argue that Jacob Marley’s visitation of Scrooge has put the fear of miserliness into children for over 170 years. What say you?
These debates happen monthly on CricketMuse’s blog, and this month I’m standing in for my friend and fabulous author, Mike Allegra. He was awarded a Ragdale Fellowship, and is busy scribbling away on a new novel in the wintry suburbs of Chicago. He will return to debate Cricket on a new topic next month.
In the meantime,
I’ll pay you all in chocolate. Promise! Just don’t tell Cricket….
Or, if you must, nominate your own ominous wintry scene over at Cricket’s blog…
