Reading between the lines

Parents beware.
Brian Danilo channels conservative US radio talk show host Sean Hannity (or perhaps it was Bishop Brian Tamaki) on McSweeneys to present the Five Most Dangerous Children's Books Ever Written.

Just so you know, The Most Dangerous Children's Book Ever Written is Clifford the Big Red Dog by Norman Birdwell - too big to get under the bed, perhaps, but still a damned pinko.
"Stories include Clifford Goes to School and Clifford Goes to Work, Where He Organizes a Workers' Revolution. "
But Clifford's got nothing on Madeleine L'Engle who apart from writing A Wrinkle in Time and undermining the very fabric of our society "also invaded Poland in 1939."
