I'm obviously defining "Kid" as a pretty long time period (I might still be in it, not sure!)
1. Richard Scarry books where I could search for Gold Bug! I think the one I had was Cars and Trucks and Things that Go because I remember the rabbit in the alligator car. I think it's even still at my grandmother's house (makes mental note to find it next time visiting)
2. The Mrs. Piggle Wiggle Series by Betty McDonald. I had no idea there was a musical or a television show, will have to search them out!
3. Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I never did made it all the way through the series (still hope to some day) but I read this one many times.
4. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O'Brien. I could have sworn the copy I had from the school library said Mrs. Brisby, long before the movie existed, but we'll go with Frisby since that seems the most common! I did like the movie too, and was very excited when my parents took me to see it back then! Once again, didn't know there were more books that his daughter wrote, will have to look for them!
5. Peppermints in the Parlor by Barbara Brooks Wallace. I think it was the first kind of scary book I ever read. I was lucky enough to come across a sale copy the other day. Haven't decided if it'll go in the PC or if I might share it through Bookcrossing. Another one I read over and over!
6. Catwings by Ursula K Le Guin, this is a recent find, but I know I would have loved it when I was little, I love cats, and the wings would have been awesome! *giggle* See I told ya I might still be a kid!
7. Revenge of the Rainbow Dragons by Rose Estes, a choose your own adventure, woohoo! Anything with rainbows on it was the best, and dragons, well that was even better!
8. Stuart Little and Charlotte's Web by E B White. I put these together since they're by the same author. I confess I still have not seen the movie of Charlotte's Web because I think it will be too sad and I'll cry! *blush*
9. The Black Stallion Series by Walter Farley. Duh, big black horse, need I say more? (probably not after the rainbow comment! teehee!)
10. Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry, Once again, horses, I think it speaks for itself! ;)
11. Johnny Tremaine by Esther Forbes, I think this may have been one of my first historical fiction forays, an the rest is... well... history! (yes, you may groan, I would!)
12. The Trixie Belden Series by Julie Campbell. I did read a few Nancy Drew's and some Hardy Boys, but I liked Trixie more!
13. And for my finale... The Muppet Show Book! by Jim Henson. It has basic scripts of a lot of the more well known episodes, so yes... I would act them out! *hides* Usually by myself, but I LOVED the muppets (still do) and watched it faithfully every week (have bought season 1 so far, must get more)
Thanks for sticking with me on the my first TT!
