"So I’m not the most adored person on the face of the earth. You have to know this. There are a lot of people who don’t like me at all, I’m very sure of that. But I wasn’t put on earth to be liked. I have my own reasons for being and my own sense of what is important and what isn’t, and I’m not going to change that.”

RIP Betty Joan Perske aka Lauren Bacall, a legend, an inspiration, and a dame in every sense of the word.

"I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that."

Betty Joan Perske aka Lauren Bacall | September 16, 1924.

R.I.P Lauren Bacall

"He was too old for me, he’d had three wives, he drank, he was an actor and he was goyim," Bacall wrote in her autobiography of her prime passion.  All that meant nothing to the slinky 19-year-old model who met the 44-year-old star while filming To Have and Have Not.  They wed in 1945 (Bogie coolly muttered "hello, baby" at the end of the ceremony), and the two embarked on several delirious years running late with the Hollywood Rat Pack, saving time for two children.  "Bogie and I were ridiculous, holding hands like teenagers….we mooned and swooned, we really loved," Bacall has said.  The honeymoon ended in January 1957 when Bogart died of cancer.  Wrote Bacall: "No one has written a romance better than we lived it."  —People magazine

Incredibly unpopular opinion about to go down.

I love this cover and think it is on point as it should be.  This is exactly how Roald Dahl wanted you to see these children.  This little girl encompasses exactly what is wrong with society and the seven deadly sins if you will.  To me this book always was the kids version of Dante’s Inferno.  I know what your thinking… “What?!”  But think about it… these children absolutely encompass some pretty terrible qualities and have to deal with their sins as the book (as in the movie) moves along.

The portrayal of Veruca Salt on the cover is very interesting that she was solely chosen to be the 50th anniversary cover.  I think the only mistake Penguin made was not doing a different cover for each child that won a Golden ticket.  That is where they messed up.  If they stylized all the children in this same ‘creepy’ high gloss magazine way it would have been cooler and much more understandable with the direction they were going with this cover.

Besides that, I think Penguin was actually on point how they styled Salt.  Do I think the cover is creepy?  Sure do and that is what Penguin was going for.  I don’t however think she looks overly sexualized.  She is made to look like the perfect doll that her parents want her to be.  Veruca’s character epitomizes how far some parents will go to absolutely spoil their children to a point that borders on obscene.  In the story they stop at nothing to make sure she gets her ‘golden’ ticket to the factory just as they would do in other situation because of their wealth.  They take their wealth and throw it around to get whatever they want even if it means ‘cheating’ the system.  Remember her parents make the workers in their own factory open up thousands of candy bars until she gets the ticket.  They stop at nothing to make sure she gets what she wants simply because they believe they ‘deserve’ a spot on the tour due to their social standing and wealth.  Which is exactly what Dahl was pointing out as a problem in our society.  Veruca is a product of her own upbringing.  Not only will her parents make sure she receives the best things in life, but she will also look the part in public at all times.  Mummy isn’t going to be the only one that leaves the house without her entire face made, as well as having the latest designer fashions, so she sure as heck is not going to let her daughter be any less either.   

This book and the movies that followed it absolutely creeped me out to the fullest and this cover reminds me why the original story did as well.  Toddlers and Tiaras is suppose to make you feel uncomfortable and question whether children should be exploited they way that they are.  Salt’s character is no different.  You are suppose to feel she is too spoiled, too plucked, too high maintenance and that is exactly what this cover is proving.  I always think it is cool that publishers give us new covers so long as we can still get the same edition from previous releases.  It sounds like that is exactly what they are doing.  As mentioned above, the only mistake they made is just doing Salt’s portrayal on the cover and not all the children individually.  That would have been more cool to collect in my opinion.  So if anyone from Penguin is reading this (doubt it), please consider releasing all the characters on their own special cover.

During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.

The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
