The Real Thing: 101 Dalmatians

Emma and I watched the
recent movies on youtube
a few weekends ago. We got
the book by Dodie Smith from
the library. I loved her book
"I Capture the Castle" so we
wondered how this dog book
was. DIFFERENT than the movie
Emma declared today. "Much
better" as she plopped the
book on my bed ( I was resting
with Orthodoxy!) and said "Read it."
Peter Pan is the same: a very
good book. What others are like
that? hmmmmmmm............

I'd put 'Alice in Wonderland' in the must-read pile. I found it hilarious.

Another friend suggested
The Wizard of Oz books. Much
different than the movie.
