Hot Topic!

I suppose this is worth noting.

I’ve been rather astonished as my post about The Golden Compass, which I wrote just a few days ago, has already become the most frequently opened and linked-to post in the eleven-year history of Looking Closer! More than posts about Star Wars, Spider-man, Harry Potter, or The Lord of the Rings!

    Jeffrey, that is surprising, but it is an awfully good post. I passed it along to a fomer colleage of mine at a community college who teaches children’s literature and this is part of her email back to me. And I quote:

    “FASCINATING article you sent. Absolutely wonderful reading. I’m going to make it assigned reading next week in class….I loved his (Overstreet’s) reminder that parents and teachers need to be reading what the kids are reading, etc. (I beat my students over the head with this idea every semester…it will be nice to present this “back up” to them as proof that it’s not just my idea, and you can bet I’ll be forwarding it on to former students, too).”
