A drive-by post. I tried to think of ten, but no.
1. Black Beauty. I loved horses.
2. Frog, The Horse That Knew No Master. The horse always had fire in his eye. He bucked everyone off and attacked them with his hooves until the handsome lieutenant loved him. Boy, talk about transference.
3. The Phantom Tollbooth. This is nominally a children's book. Jumping to the Island of Conclusions? The disappearance of Princesses Rhyme and Reason? Very fun.
4. Ditto Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Of course.
5. LOTR/Hobbit. I think I read it as a teen. Total immersion.
6. The Lion, Witch, Wardrobe, and all sequels. One of my teachers read all these aloud to us. Magic.
7. The Enchanted Castle. E. Nesbit wrote this about a hundred years ago. It is still in print. Compelling when I stumbled across it in the middle school library, I ordered it from Amazon last month. Very fun story. Might be a touch scary for today's tender ears and eyes. We were built stronger back then.
Leucojum aestivum, summer snowflake, from the garden several weeks ago. Good green foliage that stays fresh, no pests, survives voles and deer. (I have not finished my morning tea, so sentence structure is elusive.) Snowdrops are a close relative.
