Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome. My childhood reading was definitely English flavoured, and yet we identified so strongly with the characters, wanting so much to create our own adventures

Stuart Little = one of my (many) favorite books from childhood!
Wonderful read aloud chapter book!
Happy 115th birthday to E.B. White! During his life, White wrote some of best known children’s books of the past century, such as Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. He captured the imagination of children everywhere with his talking animals, while at the same time teaching them important lessons, like the value of friendship.
Stuart Little. I know it's a little kid's book, but I never read it and I feel like I should.

A String in the Harp
Harp, Books Jackets, Dust Jackets, String, Nancy Bond, Reading Lists, Dust Covers, Books Based, Dust Wrappers
A String in the Harp by Nancy Bond What we didn’t expect was to be thrown into the landscape and mythology of Wales. The writing and plot are brilliant and the imagery of Wales left us wanting to get on the next plane. Throughout the weaving of past and present there are always the charming people of Wales in both the city and countryside. This book didn’t win a Newbury Award for nothing. A truly great read. To find out more about Taliesin have a look here.

Camus highlights an existentialist man who is unable to empathize or exert emotion. The main character loses his mother and even ends up killing an Arab (in self defense) while being subscribed to apathy.
