I'm Thinking They Should Do "Gravity's Rainbow" Next

According to a front-page article in today's Times, Children's book publishers are now producing board books--those big, chunky cardboard tomes designed to be "read" (or at least slobbered on) by toddlers and a large portion of the Republican electorate--adapted from the classics.  Not classic board books, mind you: Actual classics!  There are now board book editions of Moby-Dick, Les Miserables, and Sense and Sensibility.  My personal favorite, though, if an accompanying photograph is any indication, is a board-book version of Anna Karenina.  If nothing else, that ending should keep kids away from Thomas the Tank Engine forever.
