There’s something about a

dapper lion with impeccable

taste and manners…

I loved all the Frances books but this one was and still is my absolute favorite.

Here’s to Birthdays and Chompo Bars!

Gotta love those naughty Monkeys!

“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!

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 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.

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!
