How can you NOT like a blog called:

And how can you NOT like a blog called Superdumb Supervillain that likes 1000 TIMES NO so much?

Here's a little of what she has to say:

1000 Times No is a brilliant new book by Mr. Warburton, recent cross-coast transplant and creator of Cartoon Network's Codename: Kids Next Door. It's one of the few books that appeals to both Roo (5) and Jasper (2) with bright, bold illustrations and a story that rings true to the stubborn streak that demarcates toddlerdom: they don't want to do what you want them to do. Ever. (Oh, wait– that could hold true for most kids, of all ages. And adults!)

And furthermore:

I think it's the kind of funny that is actually smart in disguise: dude, there are hieroglyphs in there! Plenty of opportunities to discuss other cultures and how their toddlers are just as surly as Americans. Win-win!

I dunno... maybe the blog should be called Superdumb Supervillain Super Great Taste in Books. Check out the rest of the review HERE!
