I was up North this weekend for a scrapbook party, and on my way back I stopped in Payson at the $1 store to walk around and wake myself up. I LOVE dollar stores! I love to load up my cart with cheap crap, or even better, stuff that used to be more expensive, but somehow finds it's way to dollar store shelves. On this visit, I loaded up on packages of photo paper, "silver" frames and.........children's books written by Madonna. I am not a big fan of Madonna, never have been. So when she announced she was going to write children's book, my first thought was...WHATEVER! I would never pay full price, or even Amazon price to check them out, but for a buck, ok.
Her first book was "The English Roses". It's about a group of little girls who won't befriend another, more beautiful, girl and judged her for it because of their jealousy. I thought it was ok, but it had definite "autobiographical" undertones. Madonna..Jealousy is not the reason I don't like you. I think you're a hoochie mama. Oh dear..I guess that's judging. Sorry!
The other book is called "Mr. Peabody's Apples". I thought the premise for this story was good, but didn't care for her take on it at all. It also has those same "autobiographical" tones. The story is about a boy who spreads rumors about Mr. Peabody that were untrue. Madonna...I can only hope that all the stories we hear about you aren't true. But, alas, some of them are bound to be! YIKES!
Anyway, if you'd like a copy of these two books, hit your nearest Dollar Tree store! By the way...the illustrations were great in both!
