kids books that no one's too old for
I am on the 4th Harry Potter, and I think they are absolutely enchanting.

series of unfortunate events is simply divine

but harry potter is for doooorks.

agreed, though the argument is based purely on the amount of marketing hype generated by those five books.

bought the Polar Express for christmas- instantly I was six again.

obviously, The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings gets a shout. Phantom Tollbooth is a favorite. A Wrinkle in Time.

Anyone ever read any of David Eddings stuff?

speaking of the polar express...

Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss. always a toughie.

oh yes, I saw the movie poster while standing in line for return of the king. I purchased the book earlier that day. serendip.

I'm not too sure how I feel about it just yet.

edited to add: excellent animation, especially with the faces. and I respect those artists... it's just...

part of my childhood is up for sale now :(

I always cringe when the bug hands that to me for his bedtime story.

i am reading phantom tollbooth right now
and, yeah, a wrinkle in time is awesome

i wonder if the series of unfortunate events movie is going to suck
the guy who's doing it also did city of angels :(

There is no book in this world that makes me feel like I do when I read The Phanotom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. No other book. Sometimes the Bible comes close, but the Bible does something else completely different for me.

soue movie has a lot of big name people in it

fodder 01-16-2004 12:26 AM

Where the Wild Things Are

be still

Yes, I am a dork. I like Harry Potter. I wish I had a wand. And a flying broom. I honestly didn't think I would be interested in reading them, until I walked around the bookstore and library for 2 days and found nothing. I borrowed these from my cousin. They're pretty catchy. What's up with children's lit. these days? They sure don't make them like they used to, in fact, what do children these days read?

Oh, and Narnia. I loved those, read them all more than once.

jenschka 01-21-2004 07:27 PM

Anything Seuss, The Toad and the Frog, Pierre the French boy, and Are You My Mother! HAH!


jenschka 01-21-2004 07:30 PM


Well, I guess I got a little carried away - these aren't really suitable for adults! I reeeeeeally went back into my childhood here! :)
