Yes, you can write children's book sequels (or at least suggest them)

Minh Le (of Bottom Shelf Books) and I are enjoying reading the entries of the Unnecessary Children's Book Sequels That Never Were contest, but there are still quite a few of you from whom we hope to hear. Minh Le has one of his own unnecessary sequels he hopes will inspire you. It's "the follow up to Leo Lionni's heartwarming classic Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse..."

"The Steadfast Tin Soldier II: Judgement Day"
Having been melted down in the fireplace with his only love the paper ballerina, the one-legged soldier emerges from a heart-shaped puddle of molten tin to be regenerated as an army of one-legged soldiers who seek revenge against their tormenters.
