^WEDNESDAY, MAY 7, 1997 APPLAUSE THE SALINA JOURNAL STORYBOOK PALS LIVE WITHIN CHILDREN % -JANE f. MARSHALL c.lttfl? Houston Chronicle Ask an adult to name his or her childhood friends. An honest grown-up will list at least one book character —. Winnie-the- Pooh or Ilorton. Maybe Peter Pan or Wendy. Perhaps Peter Rabbit, Dorothy Gale, Mr. Popper or Curious George. Those storybook buddies live within children, teaching them, guiding them, loving them no matter what. Generations of children have grown up with Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin and Eeyore. How many children have been named after Christopher Robin? How many tattered Shepardesque bears hold precious spots on shelves and in attic chests? How many youngsters have gone hop- pity-hoppity-hop or have sat half way up the stairs to discover the magic there? Millions of children in nations all around the world have whispered good night to the chair and the moon before shutting their eyes. Millions of parents have read Margaret Wise Brown's "Goodnight Moon" over and over until, years later, they can still recite "goodnight stars, goodnight air, goodnight noises everywhere." This year, the book marks its 50th anniversary. Since 1947, more than 6 million copies have been sold. Page by page, as the words and rhymes softly repeat, artist Clement Hurd dims the baby bunny's colorful room. The room is dark except for friendly shadows. At last it is night. At last it is time to go to sleep. In a New York Herald Tribune review in October 1947 when the book was new and cost $2, May Lambertson Becker wrote, "Remembering how for years I have put myself to sleep, when needed, by going over the names of the guests at the Kenwigs' evening party in 'Nicholas Nickleby' or the articles of furniture in a room described in 'Sketches by Boz,' I can testify that the principle involved in this cozy littld book is sound." "Goodnight Moon, A 50th Anniversary Retrospective" (Harper- Collins, $19.95) is a fine salute to Brown and Hurd. Along with the text and pictures to "Goodnight Moon," the book tells the story of its remarkable creators and evolution. Author Leonard S. Marcus also wrote the fascinating biography of Brown called "Awakened By the Moon" (Beacon, $15). A childhood without "Goodnight Moon" is deprived. Discover or rediscover it. Perhaps the best storybook friend in history is Winnie-the- Pooh. Last year, Pooh celebrated his 70th birthday. A.A. Milne's stories, based on his son Christopher Robin and Christopher's toys, have been published in 21 languages. A new volume called "The Complete Tales of Winnie-the- Pooh" (Dutton, $35) includes all the stories and illustrations, each recolored. The book is a bit more cumbersome for bedtime reading than the thinner individual books, "Winnie-the-Pooh" and "The House At Pooh Corner." But the color illustrations will draw today's children, accustomed to television and bright picture books. As dear as Pooh and Margaret Wise Brown's bunnies are in millions of hearts, there is always room for more.

One of the more recent names is Martha. Martha is a dog. Few dogs are ordinary, but Martha is extraordinary in that she can talk. "Martha Speaks" came out. in 1992. Martha learns to talk after Shop the I ni-jiK- \\'TU(H/' DON LOADER INTERIORS Custom Draperies (rifts l'"orAH Occasions! being fed a bowl of alphabet soup by Helen. Helen was supposed to eat the soup herself. Having a dog that can talk, the family soon learns, can be funny, embarrassing and heroic. Parents and children went nuts about Martha. Two years later, Susan Meddaugh wrote and illustrated "Martha Calling." In book No. 2, Martha gets hooked on the telephone. She calls the butcher shop and orders "lots of steaks." She wins radio contests by calling in her answers. She orders from room service. And she faces discrimination. Martha loses her ability to speak understandably when the owner of the soup company decides to downsize. The owner breaks the founder's promise to have every letter of the alphabet in every can of soup and cans 13 letters. Martha needs those other letters. She's grown accustomed to verbal communications. She cleverly takes action. Watch for more stories about, Martha. One can never have too many friends. iIKE Not just a Hobby but a Lifestyle 645 E.
