Please, help me with the book title


Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone! 

I'm pitching a children's picturebook and extremely need your help with a proper title. It's going to be a Christmas story based around the Nice and Naughty list. 

My versions: 

1. The Story of the Nice Platypus and the Naughty Duck.

2. The Story of Nice Platypus and Naughty Duck. 

Would really appreciate any help!

I don't think an extreme children's picturebook would be suitable.
Jokes aside, you don't really provide any examples of your book, the title seems rather generic if you ask me both ways.

If the question is about with or without "the", I'd say:
・If Nice and Naughty are the names of the characters, no "the".
・If Nice and Naughty are titles to describe the characters, with "the".

Several years of learning English and still have problems with using articles. Thanks a bunch for the explanation! ❤️

Here you need to think carefully. This is the most important thing that may be, a lot will depend on the name. These 2 options are too easy. I recently read essays on My Last Duchess, I used the great site for this. Here the name is perfect, it sounds loud and is remembered for a long time. It is better to sit for a month over the title of the book, for then there will be something to be proud of.
