One Star Review Guess Who? (#69)

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon?

Here is the first betrayal in a long life of betrayals, child. Your parents told you it was a classic, didn’t they? Their eyes were probably limpid with nostalgia as they gave it to you. “It’s about imagination,” they simpered. And you took it in your grubby little hands, and you put it in your grubby little mouth, and you thought, “THIS IS BORING.”

“But it’s about how creativity can take you anywhere!” they cried. And “yeah,” you babbled: “Anywhere purple.” Because that’s all it is, child, isn’t it? It’s just purple lines. “No,” they protest, “it’s pie and dragons!”
