Picture Book Hybrids

17 Mar

Jeopardy had a category tonight of hybrid musical groups.  That got me thinking of creating my own list of hybrid picture books.  Combine two picture books with one or more of the same words in the titles to create one new title.  Example:  The Napping House and The House on Pooh Corner  (which I realize isn’t considered a picture book on it’s own, but it’s my favorite children’s book)…



The Napping House on Pooh Corner


Pretty easy, huh?  And fun too!

  Here is what I’ve come up with so far.  Add your own in the comments!

The Ugly Duckling Gets a Cookie!?

Harold and The Day the Purple Crayon Quit

The Pigeon Wants a Poky Little Puppy

The Very Grouchy Ladybug Girl

Miss Spider’s Tea Party Rules

The Gingerbread Boy + Bot

The Tale of Jemima Puddle Duck, Duck, Moose!

This is Not My Cat in the Hat

Z is for This Moose Belongs to Me

Mr. Tiger Goes Where the Wild Things Are

A Troop is a Group of Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

Goodnight Owl Moon

The Butter Battle Bunny Book

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Snowy Day
