Be Careful for What You Wish - Book Reviews

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Be careful for what you wish is the theme in many books. The same is true in children’s literature. Humans want things they don’t have. It is a truth. However, we don’t consider the price we pay to obtain it.

King Derwin wants something different from the sky. He tires of only rain, snow, fog and sunshine. The king gets his wish. Green oobleck falls from the sky. The green globs cover and ooze everywhere. It nearly destroys his Kingdom of Didd. Be satisfied with what you have is the lesson of Dr. Seuss’s picture book Bartholomew and the Oobleck.

The same theme permeates The Secret of Grim Hill by Linda DeMeulemeester. It is fall;it is back to school time. Tween Cat Peters is a new student at Darkmont High. Things are not going well at the school. Detention, terrible teachers and unfriendly students make the new student’s life miserable. She longs to attend Grimore High, a posh private school. Cat believes everything in her life will improve or will it? What must she sacrifice?

Nothing is wrong to want things within reason. Wants motivate us to set goals and accomplish them. Dr. Seuss and Linda De Meulemeester are just warning children to be realistic. Dr. Seuss warns kids with zany rhymes and characters. Linda DeMeulemeester does the same using soccer and the occult.
