There’s something about a
dapper lion with impeccable
taste and manners
“Kuplink! Kuplank! Kuplunk!” My dad must have hated this book as much as I loved it because I made him read it to me over and over and over again night after night after night. It’s a good thing he was such a good sport!
I loved everything about the tiny worlds of these clever characters!
Even though I am petrified of spiders,
Charlotte has and always will have
a special place in my heart.
After reading Harriet the Spy, my best friend and I each wore a Pen-sciss-rule belt… a “spy” belt that the two of us designed. The pen-sciss-rule belt had a place for pens, a pair of scissors, and a ruler (pen-sciss-rule = pens, scissors, ruler). We wore it around our waist when we hid in the bushes for hours waiting for someone to spy on. It actually wasn’t very useful, but we felt cool wearing it.
I absolutely LOVED Nancy Drew books and still have my collection, some of which were given to my mother by my grandparents when she was a young girl and then passed down to me. I still recall the wonderful feeling I had when I was in the thick of one of those mysteries…part of me didn’t want the book to end, and part of me couldn’t wait to finish so I could find out what happened!
In High School I liked to read Stephen King Novels. ‘Salem’s Lot was the scariest book I have ever read in my life! In fact, I wouldn’t keep it in my room at night it scared me so much. I don’t read scary books anymore!
