It’s time to wrap up another round of Debatables. This month my partner in kibitzing in kid lit, the illustrious Mike Allegra, chose to back The Cat of Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat as his choice for the top villain found in children’s literature. Umm, I didn’t win with The Cat when I nominated him for the worst picture book category.
I went with Cruella de Vil of 101Dalmatian fame.
You read our arguments and made your decision. And it’s decided:
Yes, that fiendish puppy stealing devil, Cruella is pretty much a hands down decision.
There was some talk of Flying Monkeys and the Wicked Witch *shudder* no contest. She and her winged henchmen are way scary–they are in their own class of villains.
See you next month when we take on quite a buoyant topic of debate.
