I don't feel good about myself





In our closest round yet, we lose by the skin of its teeth. Fantastic Mr Fox. The books tell of the title character as he tries to outwit his neighbours and steal their food from under their noses. Many are familiar with the book but it's known more than some of Dahl's other stories because of the Wes Anderson film adaptation from a few years ago which has helped to cement it as a true classic. I have not seen the film, but I do love the book and find it really cleverly told, but with competition as strong as this every round we will be losing a treasured classic. Apologies!

Deadline: Monday 22nd February

I don't understand the amount of non-love comparative to the others James and the Giant Peach is getting. Buncha cry ass white folk.

That said as long as the rightful BFG/Matilda top 2 goes ahead I don't mind too much.

Starting to get a LITTLE BIT IRKED by The Witches presence now. It's like the UNWANTED MIDDLE CHILD that both parents just REALLY CAN'T BE ARSED WITH.
