Who's the king, R2?

And when R2D2 came to the place where the wild things are they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws till R2D2 said "BE STILL" and tamed them with the magic trick of staring into all their yellow eyes without blinking once and they were frightened and called him the most wild thing of all and made R2D2 king of all wild things.


  1. Hello - I was just reading and noticed your post about good chapter books for young kids. I love, LOVE your R2D2 posts!!! My boys, 4 & 11, just had birthdays and there are lots of little plastic star wars creatures rolling around our house, including my 4 year olds R2 with booster jets and 3rd leg missing...

    I am a mom (15 years, 3 kids) bookseller (13 years) and lifelong kid's book lover. I just started a blog reviewing kid's books in an effort to help parents find the right books for their kids. In addition to reviews, I have reading lists (like good read out louds for kids 5 and under) as well as tips on how to determine reading levels and more. Since you commented on the book post for "unplug," I thought I'd mention my blog. Hope you will check it out and find it useful! Regards - Tanya at

  2. Okay, I"m so lost on the R2D2 thing. I must read and get enlightened.
