Nightmare Helmet

I own a copy of this book since 1976. 
One of li'l faerie's favourite books.
Handed it down to Sylph Jr by 1996.
And he read it by himself by 1998.




The original book actually says...
"Go away, Nightmare, or I'll shoot you".
While the li'l boy points a toy popping rifle.
Mercer Mayer wrote this in 1968.
Freedom in anything.

The video now says...
"Go away, Nightmare, or I'll get you".
He is now holding a flimsy sword.
Freedom in banning anything against anything.

But I still love this book.
I love this story.
We all have our nightmares.
And whether we use a popping rifle,
Or a flimsy sword,
What matters is...
We don't get too mad
To wear a helmet.

Makes me recall that blog I wrote about hippies in my yoga class... remember? That was such a nightmare for me really... in a funny way though... ;p
