A Few Funny Passages

A sampling of the funniest passages in children's literature:

Mother Reader: I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. (Junie B. Jones)

Erin: If you are allergic to a thing, it is best not to put that thing in your mouth, particularly if the thing is cats. (The Wide Window)

Little Willow: Salt. Wound. Together at last. (13 Little Blue Envelopes)

I'm too late for the contest, I guess, but there was this book jacket for Patricia Wrede.
Something like: Its name was Killer and it stalked the forest. Of course it was only a rabbit. But then it metamorphosed into a blue donkey. Finally it became insubstantial.
P.Wrede has the best chapter titles, too.

Thanks for the quote! I'll add this to the compilation, which at some point I'll publish here.
