A Once and Future Classic?

I've seen the musical 'Camelot' and Disney's 'The Sword in the Stone' is my favorite of their older animated movies so when I ran across a mention of the source material (and how good it was) I finally took the plunge and ordered a copy of 'The Once and Future King.'  I've only read the first half so I shouldn't jump to conclusions, but the article I had read outlining someone's favorite books along with all the lovely reviews certainly got me a bit more excited than I am at present.  Maybe the last half will surprise me.  It isn't a bad book, not by any means, but for all of the hype I was expecting something a little different.  It is definitely worth a read but it likely won't make my personal top ten, which isn't quite fair as there are some classics in that list that have stood the test of centuries, perhaps I should add a section for 'modern favorites?'

And other nonsense!

Your assignment this week is continuing last week's theme of childish lit.  Go peruse the poem, 'The Owl and the Pussy Cat,' and write a 3000 word essay detailing the historical uses of a runcible spoon.
