My previous post inspired me to think a little more about books that I loved and books that I hated...
Here's a couple of books about animals that I thought were fantastic as a kid (okay - maybe there weren't necessarily ABOUT animals, but they definitely involved animals!):
Ugh, what a snoozer! Sorry, Richard Adams, but a book about travelling bunnies? Hmph. Check out a sentence I found in a book summary: "The little band takes off across the countryside. Along the way they encounter many obstacles such as a stream, a bean field, and a road. " You're kidding me, right? I'm sure the bean field posed a terrific opponent to a pack of rabbits.
It doesn't help that I was forced to read this book by the worst English teacher in the history of English teachers. I can only hope that she has entered retirement by now, never to wreak her obsession with hearts, stinky perfume, and lopsided hair buns on the current generation of kids.
Here are some of my all time faves:
That's all for now, folks! Feel free to leave comments about books I should read.
PS: Captain Underpants - what a great way to encourage toilet humour!
