But I’ve walked around the library and I’ve delved deep in my soul, and this is what I’ve got.
- One book that changed your life?
When I was in fifth grade, an adult saw me reading Winnie-the-Pooh and commented what a sophisticated book it was. It left me with a lifelong appreciation of the humor in Winnie-the-Pooh that I think many kids miss because they think the book is too young for them. It also gave me a firm conviction not to rush kids into older books, so when they do read a book they will appreciate it.
- One book you have read more than once?
As a child I read most of my books several times. The most recent book I read twice was The Tail of Emily Windsnap. Which I read again because I wanted to read the sequel. Which wasn’t that great. Oh well.
- One book you would want on a desert island?
If I could take the trilogy, then The Lord of the Rings. It’s complicated enough to keep my mind and imagination busy.
- One book that made you laugh?
The Junie B. Jones series always make me laugh out loud, especially if I listen to them on CD. See more on this topic in the upcoming Edge of the Forest.
- One book that made you cry?
The Yearling. Stupid fawn book.
- One book you wish had been written?
I wish that the books that have been written recently had been available when I was a kid. I think I missed out.
- One book you wish had never been written?
If you’re a reader of my blog, you’ll know the answer. The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Stupid bunny book.
- One book you are currently reading?
Kids’ books I generally finish in one sitting, so I’m not in the middle of any right now. Next on the list is Bass Ackwards.
- One book you have been meaning to read?
The Book Thief, since everyone raves about it. But it is so long, that I haven’t been ready to commit to it. I never got past the fourth Harry Potter either, and I keep thinking that I will go back and finish the series.

I believe we’re keeping this in the kidlitosphere, but if anyone from my blogroll wants to join in, please do.
