Mrs. Marco Polo Remembers by Mary Parker Dunning. This is a true story about a young bride and her one-year round-the-world tour with her professor husband in the early 1900's. Her beautiful descriptions of the places they visit make you feel like you get a glimpse back in time. Very well-written.

"The Never Ending Story", Michael Ende - After years of requesting it for Christmas, my mum finally tracked down for me the version of this book that I so coveted. It is printed in red and green ink to differentiate between the action that takes place in the story, and the story within the story. Quite a thing of beauty!

Almanzo Wilder -Little House on the Prairie. Good looking man.
