Oh, your post made me so happy! (And it's 4:30 a.m.!) A WRINKLE IN TIME was one of my all-time favorites, & is a gift I think I've given every niece, nephew, & all of my friends' kids. I LOVED that book (& have a vague childhod recollection of feigning some sort of illness in order to stay home from school & re-read it). Time to re-read again... |
I never read THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH -- but on your recommendation will buy it tonight (sorry, everyone else: quick announcement for the locals: wonderful poetry reading -- Alice Jones -- at Diesel Books in Rockridge (Oakland) tonight @ 7:30 p.m.).
Eth, would you sometime make up a list of books you love for kids (& for the rest of us who still hang with them, either literally or in spirit?). I'd love that.
p.s. The little pooper-buddha on deck will be a month old in a few more days: not too soon for mom & dad to start stocking his library! [M.C. could we have at least a monthly Emmett report? Can you imagine finding time yet?]
Anyway, thanks again, Eth...
