in that i too am trying to write a kid's book, i am in awe of the simplicity and complexity of this story and how it gets to the core of our vulnerbilities. is it a romance novel disguised? is it fufilling our desire to be taken care of, or taking care of someone else? is it overly co-dependent? is it corduroy's ingenuity about making a nest in a store and the thrill of riding elevators and jumping on mattresses after dark? is it the girls craftiness and seeing through the superficiality of the other dolls? or have i simply had tooo much caffine and over analyzing?!
on a similar note i read yesterday in the paper a bizzare story about the "roofman" who escaped from prison and holed up at the "Toys R Us"- watching spiderman dvds, playing games and riding the bikes for exercise at night! this needs to be made a movie, or maybe i should write this book:
oh the sun is bright and i have a yucky to-do list to tackle before school starts! i can't believe it's finally happening. TRUST i'm on the right path.
