Brother Grimm

I'm taking a course on children's literature this spring. It may be called "Childhood: History, Philosophy, and Literature," but mostly it just means I'm going to get to read Matilda again. And I'm pretty incredibly happy about that. To celebrate, I thought I'd post this photo of Brother Grimm, the slightly unsettling porcelain mailman who lives on my bookshelf.
