the wolf

There lay her grandmother with her cap pulled far over her face, and looking very strange.

     ‘Oh! grandmother,’ she said, ‘what big ears you have!’

     ‘All the better to hear you with, my child,’ was the reply.

     ‘But, grandmother, what big eyes you have!’ she said.

     ‘All the better to see you with, my dear.’

     ‘But, grandmother, what large hands you have!’

     ‘All the better to hug you with.’

     ‘Oh! but, grandmother, what a terrible big mouth you have!’

     ‘All the better to eat you with!’

      • Oh they are marvelous, love the teeny double headed ones.
        I share a perverse attraction to co-joined twins. The Twin genre in of itself is fascinating, “Siamese” twins drive me bonkers. I have been kicking around for about a year the task of tackling the the McCoy twins, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millie_and_Christine_McCoy as a subject for paintings/drawings. Fascinating stuff.
        Your teddies make me crazy, love them.
        Yes, it would be the perfect nursery but I’m afraid my niece is conventionally (and deplorably ) princess fixated, her affection for pink bordering on brain washed. Disappointing.
