Second Place Winner: Elaine Magliaro

Second Place in the Unnecessary Children's Book Sequels That Never Were Contest goes to Elaine Magliaro of Wild Rose Reader with her unnecessary sequel to Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The Very Hungry Larva or Moth Madness: This is the tale of a "mad about plaid" caterpillar that eats his way through all the heirloom tartans in a Scottish castle. The larva is finally caught and "kilt" by a wild and woolly sheep shearer and his weaver wife who live on the banks of Loch Lamb. -Elaine Magliaro

Hmmm... perhaps this is a necessary sequel after all. In any case, you'll want to follow the link to see Minh Le's book cover. Elaine Magliaro wins a small painting of a random robot painted by Minh.

Contest judges were Melangell and Phil. Many thanks!

Alkelda,

I am proud to be the Second Place Winner in the Unnecessary Children's Book Sequels That Never Were Contest.

Maybe I should write a picture book text for THE VERY HUNGRY LARVA!
