Don't insult me like that
Oh, how I love Karen Cushman!
Her writing is so much fun to read.
She's all about WORDS.
Glorious, creative words.
And talk about good insults!
I thought Elvis (The Small Adventure of Popeye and Elvis) was pretty good at insulting.
I mean, bug-brained booger breath is pretty good, right?
But Elvis can't hold a candle to Meggy Swann (The Alchemy and Meggy Swann).
wart-necked flap maggot
penny pinching nip cheese
mewling flap-mouthed flax wench
Cease your bibble babble, you gleeking goat's bladder.
And when she isn't busy insulting, Karen Cushman is tossing out words like:
I love this book.
Thank you, Kirby.
