If You Give a Pig a Pancake...


(my mom calls the dog Pooh Bear, and this book title has been modified to If You Give a Pooh Bear a Pancake on Sunday mornings when he gets a treat)

I think she has one, and apparently it's stunning.

I'm reading a book now called "The Number Devil" by Hans Magnus Enzensberger(Wow, what a name!). It's really odd, but I'm liking it so far. It'd probably fit pretty well into the "adults can read it too" category.

Haroun and the Sea of Stories

It's a kids book, but it's a 200-page kids book. It was just performed as an opera by City Opera (NY), and will come out as an animated feature in 2007. The playul language is wonderful.

Ooo. OOOOO. Definitely Narnia stuff, plus Barrie's Peter Pan , which always makes my insides feel warm and squelchy, and ALL of Roald Dahl's children's stuff. When I was 10 I used to read Matilda like, once a week. Movie, boo. Altho has anyone seen the movie they made from his book, The Witches? It totally has Rowan Atkinson in it. Twas from a while ago tho.

I was going to say that too, Salman Rushdie, brilliant.

All the Roald Dahl kids books, especially Revolting rhymes, I used to reag these books over & over as a child & I czn't wait for Leo to be old enough for them.

One of the things I have really enjoyed as a parent is introducing my kids to books I loved as a kid.
A Wrinkle in Time: Madeline L'Engall
Elidor: Alan Garner
The Changes Series: Peter Dickinson
The Diamond in the Window: Jane Langton
Chronicles of Narnia: CS Lewis
Peter Pan (both): JM Barrie
but these new books rock
Harry Potter(all): JK Rowling
Series of Unfortunate Events: Lemony Snickett
Spiderwick Chronicles:Tony DiTerlizzi
Eragon: Christopher Paolini

We don't have tv, so our kids read A LOT!!

love
Jo

Lemony

I love the theory and the humor in the books, but i have just got to tell you, that reading the things to Bink, by the 6th book, I was skimming. I had too much predictable banter, too much sunny said, sunny shrieked, sunny barked, sunny blurted. Too much time taken up with filler in the form of needless explanation,, I gave up, let him read em from 6 on, when he gets old enough to.

BTW this thread is great, i've made all kinds of notes, and i'm impressed with myself for as many that i've gotten right so far!

I read him the real Felix Salten Bambi, its more blood and guts than Disney, but not by much. Its got a whole different tilt, more about rites of passage than twitterpation.
