    I have no doubt that this book damaged me, psychologically, as a small child It is one of the earliest books I vividly remember reading aloud to myself, and I remember the first time my mother read it to me before she put me to bed Here s the gist of the plot A little boy named Max dresses up in a wolf costume, plays with a hammer, chases his dog with a fork, then threatens to cannibalize his mother His mother, a master of irony, then puts him to bed with no dinner Already, this story shoul I have no doubt that this book damaged me, psycholo...
