"The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark" dont remember who wrote it and cannot be bothered to get up and look....
and "The Secret Of Platform 13" by Iva Ibbotson which I would reccommend to anybody but more to people under 20.
I want to go read the owl who was afraid of the dark now....

I absolutely loved Dr. Seuss' "Bartholemu and the 500 hats" and "Horton hears a Who". I loved Nancy Drew. The Oz series,.

There is this book out there called I'll Always Love You by Hans Wilhelm. My grandma gave it to me after her dog died when I was about 7. I was very close to this dog, so it was a hard time. This book tells the same story, a story of a boy who grew up with his puppy and shared many happy memories until that time came when the dog had to go. It's a very simply written book, but devistatingly beautiful as well.

And for a good reason. I would recommend them to all. I know they are translated. I used to live in Italy, and I would buy them to all the kids I knew, and they loved them. And Pippi is quite famous. I remember one episode on Gilmore Girls, they talked about her  Go Pippi!

That dude that did The Hungry Caterpillar!

And Rupert (I can't believe I've forgotten the author's name, but surely someone can help me out by reminding me?)

Dr Seuss is fantastic, but I find that I appreciate his work more in my adulthood than I ever did as a child.

I know this sounds goofy for my age but Dr. Suess' book "Fox In Socks" is my favorite book next to "Anne Of Green Gables".

The reason I love "Fox In Socks" is cause when my 13yr old came home from school one day when she was in the 1st grade (I think) she brought that book home. I read it to her and never read it before. Before I was even 1/4 of the way through I was laughing my head off so bad that it made my tummy hurt and tears in my eyes.

So ever since then she brought it home from school several times a year until she got into the 6th grade and quit since they didn't have it in the school's library. So for 3 years I haven't had it until last week I got it from the local library. I am going to buy it when I get a chance to so I can have a copy of my own.

I know it sounds funny for a person my age to like such a kid book but I can't help it. Everytime I am down or upset all I have to do is to open it, read it, and before to long I am happy, laughing, and feeling better.

So I advise you all to find the book read it fast so you can get the best results of laughter and fun. I garuntee that you will fall in love with it. I did.
