Was it like a comic or something? I remember once having that one too.

There was also a big one with the picture of Helios's son driving the sun on the front cover, is that it? I loved that one a lot.

As for my most favorite children's book. A red covered, gold-lined paged fairy tale compendium called Treasury of Fairy Tales. I loved that book so much. It had these beautiful-yet-cartoony pictures on one side of the page, and a paragraph or two of text on the other.

It inspired me to get The Complete Grimm's Fairytales or whatever the name of the B&N version of the book, with the real version of the German fairy tales, so the only one I love that I can't read is "Beauty and the Beast."

The closest you get to the originals other than that book is the play Into the Woods by Sondheim.
And with this post, I've opened yet another can of worms.

Me: But you're the only one of us who carries a knife.

Friend: Correction, four.

When did a children's book become a movie that didn't suck?

What...the... Fick?

That book has essentially no plot. Its one of those books you really cant turn into movie. The Cat in the Hat was stretching it anyway. Hollywood people fail at life.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

They made the polar express, which was essentialy "Boy doesn't believe in Christmas, gets on train, sees santa, loses bell, gets bell back as a gift from santa, over" into a whole adventure. ON A TRAIN.

That sounds right. I can definitely recall something like that, so that could very well be it. Determining the title is still driving me mad though. :(
