Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

Today’s daily prompt asks us to write a post in the style of (or simply inspired by) a favorite author.

That’s difficult…I don’t have a favourite author, I have a multitude of favourite authors.  However in saying that I teach four library sessions each week and the younger cherubs enjoy funny books, especially books that are inspired by their favourite books…such as…

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly

There was an old lady who swallowed a thong

There was an old lady who swallowed a mozzie

There was an old bloke who swallowed a chook

There are a multitude of different versions of this story…too many to list here, but these are some that the cherubs enjoy.

There’s also versions of The Gingerbread Man

The Lamington Man

Jack and the Beanstalk
