We'll eat you up, we love you so!

This is a little belated if you think Peeps are an only-Easter treat -- really, does anyone actually stop eating them when Easter's over? -- but via the Washington Post, here are some incredible Peep homages to our favorite children's books:

"Goodnight Peep" by MaryLea Harris

"The Mad Hatter's Peep Party" by Amy Billingham, Rob Black, and Lauren Emeritz

"Peepaline" by Grace Timmeny

And my personal favorite...
"Where the Wild Peeps Are" by Margaret Cooney and Adam Matuszeski

The whole round-up of the fourth year's entries in their annual "Peep Show" diorama contest is definitely worth a look. The winner was this interpretation of the Pixar movie Up, entitled "Eep!"

But EVEN BETTER (I know, it better be spectacular to beat out a Peep Where the Wild Things Are), the Washington Post reports that J.K. Rowling's considering more Harry Potter books! Apparently, at the Easter Egg Roll at the White House, JKR said she may write more Harry sequels "maybe 10 years from now" and other, non-Harry books in the "not-too-distant future." I, for one, am willing to wait! In the meantime, listen to Hank Green's (brother of Looking for Alaska author John Green) song "Book 8" and giggle.
