I got this from a friend on tumblr, and thought I should post it here, too.
1. Favorite childhood book?
This is complicated. So, here are some books that got re-read a lot when I was a kid:
The Amelia Bedilia books by Peggy Parish.
Keep Your Mouth Closed, Dear by Aliki Brandenberg (This is the first book I remember laughing at so hard I cried. It's about a crocodile who swallows things on accident. I'm grinning just thinking about it.)
The Hobbit by… well… you all know it's JRR Tolkien. I read this for the first time when I was eight. Mom was reading it to me, but she got sick in the middle and said, "You know, I think you can read well enough to finish it for yourself." So I did.
