    Scandinavian EuroDisney was a bad idea all round.

    Oh, you kiss your mother with that mouth, do you, young man?

    Apparently reading C.S. Lewis in any language leaves a bad taste in one’s mouth.

    Amazing how C.S predicted the bouncy castle.

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Voyage of the Dawn Treader…the horrifying story of an innocent lad kidnapped by apocalyptic Christian cultists, forced to endure slavery, near-fatal thirst and hunger, undergo extreme body modification, then develops a case of Stockholm Syndrome as the character who’s been antagonizing him the whole time commits suicide in religious ecstasy.

    And that’s not a joke. That’s how I read the story as a child.

    What look like mouse ears are in fact Munch’s ‘The Scream” (left) and the Mekon (right). The dragon doesn’t know where to look.

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    The mouse looks so stylistically out of place for a second I thought it was censoring something.

    I’ll let you go ahead and savor the idea of this funky Scandinavian dragon with a boob in its mouth for a few moments.

  8. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tom: perhaps that is how dragons suckle their young? When Eustace was changed into a dragon, perhaps he was changed in other ways as well…

    You know, I was under the impression this book was about a voyage in a sailing ship . . . Mind you, the captain WAS a talking mouse.

    Happy nightmares, kids!
