Things New Parents Should Know #27 - Reading [Feb. 12th, 2010|02:18 pm]

I read a lot to Lex. And because of who I am, I usually try to give most of the characters distinct voices. And for my own amusement, I pretty much always try to make one of those character voices... a bit extreme.

Little Golden Books, Fairy Tales, just about everything benefits from one character who has a voice that bit off kilter.

The Cat in the Hat is much more enjoyable to read, and a hell of a lot more disturbing, if you read all the Cat's lines as a cross between Richard O'Brien's portrayal of Riff Raff from Rocky Horror Picture Show and Anthony Hopkins playing Hannibal.

Try it for yourself!Collapse )
